If you do not know Mark’s work head over to his website and get ready to be blown away! Mark sends in the photos below as his raw working material from which he will make his famous painterly images.

    What a gorgeous set Mark. The softer colour, the mirror image & the cloud formation together make for beautiful compositions – well suited to the ‘painterly’ application. I especially like No 6, it looks as if you’ve already started that process, lovely.

  2. Wow, you guys have it in Spades with your backyard Scenery !!

    the water color and reflections of waterfowl lake with mt chephren made my Day !

  3. Mark, these are fabulous and I can only imagine what you will do with them once you find the time. My pick would be 2 (beautiful warm-cold contrast and sense of vastness) and 5 (amazing clouds and lines). I can’t believe you got shot 6 without a tripod, I’m impressed!

  4. Really like the last three images, Mark, particularly with the clouds and your perspective in each. I will look forward to seeing your ‘painterly’ renditions on your website.

  5. Can’t wait to see what the finished versions of these will be! I really dig the expansive feel of these images. I know they are not finished yet, but my fave is shot 6; the colour palette in that one is particularly gorgeous.

  6. Pure gorgeousness. I especially like the interplay of light and shadow in the first image, and the expansiveness of the second. Very well done, Mark! I shall monitor your site for the finished paintings!

    Fantastic images Mark! Love the skies in these and the Chephren shots totally rock! I’m still blown away by the fact that these are all handheld- especially the Preacher’s Point sunrise- too sweet.

    Hope you’re totally loving the retirement so far!

  8. Great images Mark, I’m sure you’ll turn them into even more beautiful painterly images. I really like the last one, the colours, the reflection, the ice, it’s lovely.
