Gosh bill, I really like your work.
If I could paint, I would do houses, but alas the best I can do is play aound with photoshop

This is great! The trolley looks almost 3D and coming at the viewer. I love the colors in this.

I really like this one - a lot. Maybe because it reminds me of my own commutes in Trams in Switzerland. There is something so straight forward clear and simple and heart felt in this image. Congratulations to a job well done!

How realistic, it is as if you took a picture and photo-shopped it

Hi Bill - I saw your blog on blogs of note the other day -as many did :)

I like the dominant vertical lines in this painting. I get a sense of being at a great height, almost a dizzying, out of breath sensation. Wonderful!

I really like this one! Especially the use of color and simplicity.

Hi Bill,

Being from Lisbon, of course that I had to comment on this one.
You've made a good interpretation of the sunlight and the composition is quite pleasant.
Sometimes I also paint alla prima, usually simple still lifes, namely single objects, and landscapes.
In my opinion, doing cityscapes alla prima is more difficult and in this case you did a great work.

Kind regards,

José
