This is an oil of one of my Gouache sketches of Alderburgh. I am itching to get out and paint. I have a friend who has already been out for 3 hours and painted. He said his fingers were numb with cold. I can do flowers in the studio but I am fast running out of ideas .it is frustrating. I have painted some cracking studio paintings and generally, I feel like I am improving in oil, except when I drink too much coffee, then it`s all enthusiasm and no steady eye. Soon I hope to be out there.
