What a lovely shot..so peaceful and tranquil..thank you Harry,I would love to dip my toes in there.


Comment by Gary Leece on 25th June 2017 at 08:45
Back to being a two year old, nearly 64 years ago, walking with my Grandad.
Many thanks Harry - not just my nostalgia, but an excellent shot in itself.


Comment by Elizabeth on 25th June 2017 at 09:46
Hello Maureen, this is quite near to where your brother Mike used to live. The wood is beyond the field at the back of where I live. It's lovely,I walk in there regularly.


Comment by Lock Lass on 25th June 2017 at 10:04
I love this photo Harry, all those reflections of different colours of green - so serene.


Comment by Syd on 25th June 2017 at 12:24
An absolutely beautiful photo,thanks Harry, just great.


Comment by Maureen on 25th June 2017 at 13:22
Hello Elizabeth,thank you for that info...what a lovely area for a walk..there's no such places like that in Beech Hill I'm afraid.

Maureen, you are not so far in Beech Hill from some pleasant walks in Elnup Wood. You can get there along the route of the old mineral line which went from Giants Hall to John pit or the longer route via Standish Wood Lane and back to Beech Hill through the wood.


Comment by Veronica on 25th June 2017 at 14:17
I can almost hear the tinkle and splash of the water. Very good picture.


Comment by Johnny on 25th June 2017 at 16:50
Great shot. Such a tranquil scene.
Hows your acrylics coming along, Maureen?


Comment by Maureen on 25th June 2017 at 17:56
Thank you very much Derek.


Comment by Mary on 25th June 2017 at 18:13
Welcome back Gio.


Comment by Maureen on 25th June 2017 at 18:30
Well hello Johnny..to be truthful..I'm using them both..both in portraits and animals but.....my main love is oils..I find that I can shade better with oils..and I love shading..are you still painting Johnny and what are your favourite subjects...nice to talk to you again.
I apologise for going off subject Harry.


Comment by Ellen on 25th June 2017 at 21:55
How lovely, I can almost hear the water,and feel the cool breeze.
...Oops, I CAN hear the water and feel the cool breeze,but it's from the millpond at the back of our house, which overflowed it's banks after a large rainfall from a thunderstorm on Thursday night! Thank goodness the house is on top of a twenty foot hill!
..But seriously, this is a lovely picture. Thanks Harry.


Comment by Harry C. on 26th June 2017 at 08:18
No need to apologise Maureen, carry on painting and I thank you and every one for your interest and comments. H.


Comment by Maureen on 26th June 2017 at 19:37
Harry..you're a true gent.


Comment by Maureen on 26th June 2017 at 20:48
Harry..you're a true gent.


Comment by Dorothy on 26th June 2017 at 23:06
Maureen have you ever tried painting with pastels? You can create such a vibrant painting and the colours never fade.


Comment by Maureen on 27th June 2017 at 07:46
Hello Dorothy,I think I've tried every medium,but I keep going back to oils..I love what I can do with them..but thank you anyway....can I ask what subjects you portray.


Comment by Veronica on 27th June 2017 at 11:15
Maureen, Dorothy pastels are really good to use and I think the easiest. I've done quite a few pictures with them yet I always go back to water colour.


Comment by Maureen on 27th June 2017 at 16:05
Hello Veronica, I think everyone finds their own medium to work with,and of course when you do find your own favourite it makes all the difference in the enjoyment of painting...I'm in another world when I'm painting.


Comment by Dorothy on 27th June 2017 at 18:09
Maureen/Veronica. I love painting Seascapes, Landscapes and Fruit, pastels are very forgiving when you make a mistake it is easy to rectify. Are you members of an Art Group? I go to my local Art Group we are all of a certain age! I agree about being in another world. Happy painting!


Comment by Veronica on 27th June 2017 at 21:14
Yes Dorothy I'ma member of my local art group and a 'certain' age. I love landscapes ,
Seascapes and still life as well as ballet dancers! That's why I look on PAD everyday for inspiration for landscape and there are some really good pictures I must say!


Comment by Maureen on 27th June 2017 at 22:13
Dorothy/ Veronica..I'm not a member of an art group,but I seem to have been painting all my life..I love portraiture and animals..have done a couple of landscapes,but never have any satisfaction doing them..I suppose everyone have their own likes and dislikes although dislikes is a silly word isn't it..have just finished George Michael portrait,and wondering who to paint next..I'm also on the forum'Wigan Rejects' and painted dogs for two of the people on there.


Comment by Dorothy on 27th June 2017 at 22:23
Veronica I occasionally watch painting demonstrations on Utube they are interesting and informative. Do you have an Exhibition at your group where you can sell your work if so desired, it's a great feeling when you do, the fact that someone loves your work.


Comment by Veronica on 28th June 2017 at 08:46
Regards to both - we have a different artist once a month and an exhibition in the library. I like watching various artists on YouTube.Try it Maureen. I like Sheila Gill. I've drawn the grand kids and Wotsit Cumberbacth oh and Cary Grant! Apologies Harry ! (we'll be banned on here) :0)) !


Comment by Veronica on 28th June 2017 at 10:47
Ps - lovely talking to you both!


Comment by Maureen on 28th June 2017 at 14:49
Veronica,I don't think Harry will mind,as I
previously said..I think he's a gent,.mind you
I won't make a habit of it,but it has been nice to have a chat about painting. Thank you Harry. x
