I'm helping Val out this month – Brian (scouserl41)

Post your painting for February 2018 Challenge here.

1/ Post only one painting per person. Post only your finished paintings. If you need help, post it in the encourager section.

2/ Do your best to keep your entry as close as possible to the original Challenge photo. Please DO NOT make additions to the subject unless otherwise stated. We try to maintain a fair and equal field for all entries from beginner to advanced.
Feel free to use the subject photos in your own creation BUT place it in the Encourager section, NOT in the challenge. Thank you for your ongoing support of these challenges.

3/ Any single paint medium may be used including; watercolour, acrylic, oil, watercolour pencil, brusho, inktense or pastel. If it is not specifically listed, DON'T USE IT! If you are unsure, PM me directly.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time do not combine w/c with w/c pencil, or gouache. There will be changes forthcoming allowing the more advanced painter to combine these mediums under w/c. Thanks for your patience.

4/ When posting your entry, please list type of paint (w/c, oil, acrylic, w/c pencil, inktense) used. Appreciated as it may help someone with less experience.   

5/HAVE FUN!!   Brian

First one to submit again I really wanted to wait this month to see what everyone else came up with but I’ll just end up tinkering so I have to get this off the easel and think of another project

 :clap: Neil, your submission is amazing!  Your brush strokes are those of a master in the making... The end result is a calming composition that beckons the viewer to jump on board. :smitten:  I am guessing you used water mixable oils?
