Wonderful painting, you truly are a gifted painter. Looks more real than the real thing.

Comment by: Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 3rd December 2017 at 00:45

Beautiful! Well done Maureen, you are a wonderful artist.

Comment by: Roy on 3rd December 2017 at 01:04

Nice one Maureen, my best subject at TLS.

That is excellent, Maureen.

Good on you, lass...!!

The same but different.

Beautiful Maureen, simply beautiful, Love it !.

Comment by: Jim tomney on 3rd December 2017 at 07:08

If you didn’t know you would mistake it for a photo absolutely beautiful well done.

Comment by: Anne on 3rd December 2017 at 07:37

That's an excellent example Maureen and quite different for PAD.

Comment by: Maureen on 3rd December 2017 at 08:09

Thank you very much Brian.

Comment by: irene roberts on 3rd December 2017 at 08:52

That's absolutely. lovely, Maureen! I feel I could walk into it and touch the trees. Well done!

Comment by: Aubrey on 3rd December 2017 at 08:58

Well done a very good painting.

Comment by: Helen of Troy on 3rd December 2017 at 09:42

Maureen, I like the way you have captured the light on the tree trunks & the leaves on the beech tree are so in relief that you feel they may drop to the ground any second.

Comment by: Elizabeth on 3rd December 2017 at 09:45

it's lovely, Maureen. You have captured the colours beautifully.

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 3rd December 2017 at 09:47

That's lovely that Maureen!

Comment by: David Barker on 3rd December 2017 at 10:32

Very nice Maureen,excellent choice of colours, just like the photo your very talented, well done.

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd December 2017 at 10:39

Very striking Maureen and lovely colours. I can see you enjoyed painting the scene.

Comment by: Maurice on 3rd December 2017 at 10:39

The photo shows how very nice the actual painting will be Maureen,the problem with taking a photo of a painting is a special lens,and a very good camera are needed to correct the distortion.

Comment by: MarieM on 3rd December 2017 at 10:55

Just beautiful.

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd December 2017 at 11:02

I agree with what Maurice says. To get the best effect a painting would need 'scanning' to get the best result for printing purposes.

Comment by: Maureen on 3rd December 2017 at 11:17

Thank you to everyone..scenes are not really my favourite to paint,but when I saw this on photo a day I just had to paint it..I thought it was a lovely shot so couldn't help myself..I just paint anything that catches my eye..they all just get put upstairs..and Maurice..you are so right re taking a photo of a painting..it's never quite the same is it!!
Again thank you to Brian for putting it on here and of course all my Wigan World friends..you really are a grand bunch.

Comment by: Ron D on 3rd December 2017 at 11:43

The captured lighting is superb ,.Especially the trees .Like it a lot.

Comment by: Julie on 3rd December 2017 at 11:58

This is very professional painting Maureen lovely.

Comment by: Maurice on 3rd December 2017 at 12:13

Maureen,please put some more on,they make a nice change to ordinary photos.

Comment by: Maureen on 3rd December 2017 at 13:48

I would like to add that Veronica is a very good artist,I have seen some of her work and it's very good..it's lovely.

Comment by: Cyril on 3rd December 2017 at 13:58

Well done Maureen, I always admire folks who can draw and paint what they see.

Comment by: Harry C. on 3rd December 2017 at 14:30

Excellent painting Maureen Thanks for using my p.a.d. H.

Comment by: irene roberts on 3rd December 2017 at 15:10

I can vouch for Veronica's paintings, too....two talented ladies indeed!

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd December 2017 at 15:24

Thanks Maureen ...but I'm too critical of my own art to have it on here. When we have an exhibition in the library in March I'll let you know the dates. I don't mind people looking when they are on display. I know the reason you put yours on here -and well done!

Comment by: WILLY WACKUM on 3rd December 2017 at 15:32

Can't see any comment from MICK????? Perhaps his mouth is full of 'Humble Pie'

Comment by: Pat McC on 3rd December 2017 at 16:03

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful painting Maureen.
It must be wonderful to be so artistically talented. Puts my ‘painting by numbers’ in the shade!

Comment by: Maureen on 3rd December 2017 at 17:05

Veronica I was critical of this painting myself,if you take notice I've done it on a block board,I always paint on a Daler board varnish then frame it,this one was just a challenge because I loved the photo itself..as I said I've seen your work and believe me there's nothing to be critical about,your ballerina and still life are beautiful..you are very talented.

Comment by: Garry on 3rd December 2017 at 18:56

Just perfect, you're very talented Maureen, well done x

Comment by: Elizabeth on 3rd December 2017 at 19:03

Hello Maureen, when you say scenes aren't usually your favourite things to paint but when you say the photo you knew you just had to paint it reminds of hearing Ronnie Wood saying much the same thing when he was being interviewed. He said he would begin painting when rehearsals had finished whilst on tour because he knew he just needed to paint.

Comment by: Maureen on 3rd December 2017 at 20:28

Hello Elizabeth,yes I know what you mean only too well.I love portraits and animals,but sometimes as I say not scenes,the only other time I had to paint a scene both you and Irene' know about,and the other was Aldby Park when my eldest lad was the gardener there....and I must say Elizabeth,if I could paint like Ronnie Wood I'd be well chuffed.

Comment by: John Morris on 3rd December 2017 at 22:51

That's a lovely painting Maureen, I wish I could paint. In a painting you can leave out the litter and pop bottles floating in the water. That reminds me of the time I was doing photography for the now defunct Manx Line. I took a picture of the ferry being unloaded in Douglas but they were having work done on the ramp and I couldn't avoid getting the big orange/red propane gas cylinders in shot so they used my picture for an artist to do a painting for the brochure cover. Guess what? He included the big orange propane gas cylinders in the painting!

Comment by: Ellen on 3rd December 2017 at 23:05

Absolutely beautiful Maureen. I really felt that I could reach out and touch the velvety moss on the trees!
..what an exceptional talent you have! Thank you for sharing it.

Comment by: Maureen on 4th December 2017 at 08:56

John..as the saying goes 'Every picture tells a story'..and also John,have you noticed that men that get themselves in prison also find that they can paint,and the reason being that they suddenly find time on their hands,which to me means that we all have the ability to paint what we see,plus if you have the enthusiasm you will eventually get there.

This is my board , this is me , my eye, my arm,my brush you see. We paint together you and me. No one in the room just you and me.
Forever my work , it came from soul, this is mine , but I give to all...

Comment by: Elizabeth on 4th December 2017 at 19:01

I'm sure you could give Ronnie a run for his money, Maureen!

Comment by: Maureen on 4th December 2017 at 20:00

From Where..your poetry is so moving..so touching,it's lovely.

Elizabeth,I don't think so for one moment..his portraiture is brilliant..I can only wish...thank you anyway.
