I started this painting a few years ago then pushed it aside when I felt I couldn't add to it anymore.
I'd started it in acrylics and it got to a point where I wasn't able to finish it and it sat in the corner of my room staring at me daring to pick it up again.
As I progressed larger canvasses then intimidated me so I got smaller and smaller , all the while with this and a few other paintings sitting in my subconscious waiting to be finished.
I mentioned this to another art club friend who gave me the encouragement to got back to larger ones with a lovely comment last week. "You're getting good at this aren't you ,"
So I finally picked it back up last night and finished it with a liberal addition of oils having taken some tuition from a good couple of friends in the use of oils.
This measures 20x16 inches or 50x40 cm approx.
