I`m really loving this commission for laura. Although I may change the colour of the Sun. I`ve worked a bit more on the sunflowers and that little extra really paid off. I can still do a bit more too. Theres also a bit of landscape on the left  middle I may change.

We`ll I`m not going to crack open the Champagne just yet with this . The Boat and Sea are far too light however there really are some great bits of painting in this.  Its really looking good.

Started a new one today. I swear to God if I can get through this life without making painting an intelectual exercise but rather a joyful expression like a child I would have succeeded.

Been in the studio twice and disliked the shape and the way the painting has progressed . The town is being reshaped to be a little smaller and the distant orange groves re done. Orange trees yet to come and refined so not so rough. I can now see it is different from the others and is starting to look good.The yellow sunflowers were dampened with a little yellow ochre. There is still a way to go but when its done it`ll be worth a few bob.
