Second Attempt


This is my second attempt. It is 8x10 and took 3 hours. I found it quite frustrating, and difficult to get the lights light enough and the darks dark enough. I have painted in oils before, but it's always taken me weeks to finish something. I'm finding it hard to do a painting in one sitting that looks ok. However, I'm going to take Rob and Anita's advice and work on a coloured ground and work smaller.
