"Watched" Oil on board

Watched is now complete and I'm reasonably pleased with it. There will always be some elements of any painting that I feel I could have done better, but that's the incentive to do the next one,.. and the next, etc.
It has been a busy week here at "Les Jardins des Arts" where I live, paint and teach, with my wife Lynne, in the Charente, South West France. (Busy and hot, current night-time temperatures in the 20s). As well as our normal classes, our very good friend Paul Brown has held another one of his masterclasses in oils and once again it was a great success. The photos I have included, say it all.
