  5. Another masterpiece of yours, Tom. No matter how long it takes to do it (I'm quite sure it took shorter than the two previous) but what really matters is allowing us to contemplate this wonder. Congrats again, Tom.

  8. I really like this painting Thomas. Great tone and brushwork. Thanks for sharing. Did you stand in the middle of the street to paint this?

  9. Majestic watercolor, I like the contrast between the background and the floor and not flags as part of your style, congratulations.

  10. thank you all so much - can't tell you how much i appreciate your thoughts and words. and robin, i did stand in the muddle of chambers street - in front of the tweed courthouse on the right - but only long enough to do a b/w value/composition sketch in pencil. took a couple of photos, and painted it in the studio
