Spending all day making miniatures can get quite frustrating as it's very focused and detailed work.
Though it's not as frustrating as the work the 3rd year behind me in the studio is making; complicated constructions out of matchsticks.
This was his sentiment the other day
So to give myself a break I've decided to do at least one painting a week - my schedule permitting of course - which doesn't have to be related to my current practice.
This is the first one.
Holkam Beach, Norfolk.
Or 'that beach where they filmed the end scene of Shakespeare in Love'
16x12", painted in oils.
