Really like this Pauline. Conveys a wind-blown winter's day, but one, as long as I'm geared up in warm scarf /hat/gloves, I like to be out in. Less people around. The sweep of sky, the rock breaking the horizontal, the definition of the foreground were elements that hooked my eye.

Thanks for sharing

I like this painting too. I find it interesting that each blade of grass in the foreground (I assume that is grass) is outlined, a technique that makes an image look more solid to me (something I like in art). It would have been less effective if you had just put in strokes for the blades.

I can't tell if it is a painting of a beach or a moor -- and that confusion is my fault, not yours, since I live in America and thus live with a different topography than Brits do.

I'm not seeing anything in the painting that strikes me as amateurish, but I hasten to add that I am not an artist and don't collect art (although I would if I had the money).
If you don't like the black theme, it is easy to switch to a lighter color. Just ask me how.

If I don't critique your poem, it is probably because I don't understand it.

Thanks Perry.
Chuffed you like this.

It's most definitely a moor, but i can see how you see a seascape. My sister saw the same.

greetings Pauline

i find a fine merge of bluster & calm that speaks so well of the nature of nature

also i know it was not intended
yet the image posted is not level
and i find the white on the top right and the right side
and an interesting avant-garde feel that i like a lot

i hope you and yours have been safe and healthy during this Covid era
