Nice work! Wish I was that handy with a brush. Out of curiousity; why is the Armstrong as light as it is? Was it the light, dust, atmosphere, a combination? It does say that LA is fading... Those works manage to capture the essence. Keep up the good work.

Trouble of the stage 3 variety... I think the stage 8 variety is fresher in our minds and we looked at the caption, rather than the telltale cobblestones.

Nice work, robema.

Let's not put robema in a tough situation (potentially violating Forum guidelines) by raising that question in the threads. I suggest that if you have questions, or suggestions, to utilize Private Messages.

A well deserved compliment it is too. I posted that because it does seem like such a natural question, and one that others might also ask.

Seeing images (on the TV) is what upset me on stage 3 this year... But your art captures it all. Very good work sir. Painting is my weakness in the art department. I used to be an excellent drawer with a fine detail in shading, but then I had a stroke and I don't have the coordination anymore

the cobbles and dust do create an interesting effect...you can see it in photgraphy as well.
