Day 1. Really enjoying this. As I`m painting I am realizing what I didn`t capture when I was there in the flesh and what information is necessary and what isn`t. Mostly detail like the colour of the top of the side rails,just detail detail detail.   so it`s all a great learning curve.

Day 2

Very much enjoyed doing this.One thing I notice is that I may need to change my brushes from flats to rounds as my style has changed.

Got stuck straight in with this first picture in the studio.

While I havn`t abandoned my Naive style I am moving on as all artists do to revitalise and refresh. 

I am for the time moving away from Naive whilst keeping the flavour .

I love my Naive work ..But not now...
