Thank you so much everyone for the great comments. I cannot wait to see the whole video without any interruptions. (maybe 3 in the morning will do it just kidding I love my great niece, painting and cooking in that order)
I felt so proud when I read Dennis' words. Bring on the cranes!!

Carol, first out despite other impotrant tasks. Fine watercolour with an artistic twist.
Doina, an exciting watercolour with great contrast in bright colours.

It`s great to try oil painting again. I liked to paint with oil but cannot stand the scent any more.
I have used water suluble oilpaints, worked outside and let it dry in the garrage. This is as far as I came last night.

I actually started this six months ago before I went north. Decided to finish it off yesterday. I think I will redo this at a later date...man do I have a LOT of later dates!!  :2funny:

Its a bit sticky round the edges....I'm surprised I could get the tape off!!!  :crazy2:

Cheers, Val
