"Hatchling" Oil on board SOLD

Well, it's been well over a month since I posted last. I've been busy teaching and painting, doing the things I enjoy the most, working on new paintings and trying to develop my ideas beyond the sketchy, thought stages. "Hatchling" is a new painting based on a previous watercolour and I'm really quite pleased with it.
My good friend Paul Brown has recently introduced me to a new support/board called Gessobord, available from the states and I'm really looking forward to trying it. It has quite a smooth, completely non absorbent surface that he reckons is perfect for my style of work, so I'm just about to give it a try. I'll keep you informed.
Our art classes here in Hanc are still busy. If your in the area and would like to see what you can do, please get in touch. I'll try and make sure the next posting doesn't take so long to produce.

Your comments or questions are welcome.
