My boards are nearly ready for use, the ones that I have been preparing during the week. I have been neglecting my oil painting for some time, as watercolour as been the main focus of my attention. So I think it's time for a change up, to oil painting again for a while. The painting pictured today, oil on linen board 6x8 ins, completed about 6 months ago. Is of three farmers having tea in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo. outside a cattle market. I put a lot of texture into this work, in my attempts to gain perspective, from the figure on the left, to the one on the right.
