This is one that I have been working on. It`s now the second day on this. I`ll have to wait again as it is rather thick with oil.

Firstly the sun has come out and there is warmth in the air and I can't wait to get out but I just have to finish what I was doing. I wanted to do a smaller version of this and put people in. There a bit wet so they stand out a bit too much but when the paint dries they should go back.

Finished. I love doing these they are such fun and a welcome break. Will make a great Licensing image.
By the way, I have been to Antibes and did sketch and paint and swim right here with my then young family. This is done from those sketches, although a few years back now.

Well with this one I added people and realised that it would not work with people, mostly because it is so large. So I scrubbed them out which is always a risk. I am sure if I do another smaller one with people it would work which I intend to do next.
The picture below it coming along nicely and I have made some sweeping changes which always feels good. Structurally it is nearly complete and works well as a design. It needs lots of detailed attention still and I have to work out a few problems . Steady as she goes Captain...

I did not get much work done today as I got up late and then had to go to the dump and then to Solo to get more board and then prime that up ready and then to the Art shop to get Gesso and two large Hog hair brushes. But then got in to nearly finish this little oil. I like this

Sticking with the still life. This is probably my favourite way of working. It`s a 16 x 16-inch canvas (No.166 oil primed linen from Bird and Davies.) which I stretch myself.
I like them because I love working in oil and 16 x16 inches is handleable and I can get the gist of it in a day and if it isn`t working you can just rub off.
