Another painting from our travels. This is the old town of Oswestry on the border of Wales and England and it's a market town dating back to Roman times.

Very nice balance of line and wash Brian.  O0   Like your signage on the 'King's Head' tavern. Well done.

Such a quaint town it was crying out to be painted. Now I have to find time to paint all the other places we've been!!!

Re prioritize, that's the ticket. Of course it never seems to help me, I still tend to get lost in what I'm doing and before you know it.... half the day is gone! I'm a lost cause...  ;D
Cheers, Val

Isn't that what art is about Val? Making days vanish!
