Have had a most enjoyable afternoon starting this painting....I say starting but this is actually a second attempt. Yesterday after a dismal week I put this board on the easel and got started, it was an awful attempt and at the end of my efforts got wiped off. Deep breath and another start today....a little more promising though still early days, don't want to be over cocky. It's amazing how one or two lame attempts can rock your confidence and you start to doubt you'll ever produce another decent piece of art. All being well this one and and a couple others will be heading to Edinburgh at the end of the month.
