Work in progress

Hello friends.
I have been neglecting to write in my blog, and so I thought I should post a pic of one of my new works. This is about 3ft x 2ft, and has been quite a challenge. I have been doing small sketchy daily watercolor paintings for many months, and I found that returning to large oil-on-canvas very difficult.
My medium was wrong, my paint brushes were thick and clumsy... it almost hit the bin one night!
Now, although I have some refining to do, I am happy enough with it.
When finished I'll upload a replacement pic.
Feels good to be back... :)
(and apologies to anyone who is following me on Twitter: as I spend too much time there, and tend to rant a lot, especially about our local politics... and only occasionally about art.)
