New method

I just recently finished this one and am quite pleased with it.  Usually I work on a painting constantly till its finished but I started this before Christmas and then came back to it a few months later.  

Oil on Linen
16" x 20"

I was interested in a more layered approach and started with a really smooth lead primed canvas, and did the drawing with rubber brushes - not sure exactly what they are called or even what they are for but I like them.  Blunt tools stop you getting too fiddly.

Then I just threw paint down, sparingly and intuitively letting it evolve naturally.

The WIP.
