Gorgeous colors and movement, Oliver! Wonderfully executed, I love it!!

Oliver Johnston replied:

Thanks for your kind comment - the black silhouette really brings out the depth in the colours.

I like the contrast and the way you lead the viewer to the sun. Beautiful

Oliver Johnston replied:

Thanks, Ann. The colours contrast a lot, but I also think that they work well and complement each other. The sun shines out and cannot be missed!

I love the ACID SUN! :)

Hi Jake. Many thanks! Really pleased you like the bright colours. Oliver.
