I have discovered a fumes free solvent that cost the earth but means I can work without poisening myself  and am loving working in oil now. This is a piece I am doing of Newlyn a favourite theme of mine. 

Also shalf way through this little Alderburgh Boating Lake that I am doing from my sketches.

At the moment I have been in the mindset of starting and finishing everything I have started without any hesitation. Just get on with it and make it work even if it looks like a none starter, and that mindset which is taking me to new places is working for me. This is the second sitting on this little oil.

Finished at last

Penzance and the Scillonion

Still working on this theme and outlining which I am enjoying. These are oil and rather sticky and thickly painted. Have to wait for them to dry a little now,
