These two seem a bit different for you. I like the depth and tonal values of the first one. The second one has a lovely cool grey light.

René, your paintings are becoming more and more atmospheric, wonderful!
I am again impressed, as usual, of your ability to produce such dense paintings with so few shades of colour!

Really nice,a bit different for your approach a little tonalist in style.

Thank you all for the warm comments.

Indeed Keith I just thought I have to paint some woods and across this heather I thought of you're latest work, ... thanks!

What a nice surprise "Art collector's corner" I am very pleased thank you.

Dankje Carry.

Thank you to Liza, coming from you is appreciated even more!

Indeed Jim, I think mainly because I try to getting used to paint with the light, while my panel and palette is also in the sun, I see it done by many English artists and when you focus on it to be aware constantly it's doable

A Day in the Woods is absolutely brilliant Rene. If I was a collector ( Can`t afford to buy ), This is the one I would want. Wonderful painting. All the best Rene.
