Shetland studio work goes on

Another day at the paint face.. slight panic as I couldn't find any white oil paint - fortunately found an unused tube, but not before I had ordered a large quantity of it from several art supplies; will wait to see which arrives here first.  

So here is a painting that I have been working on for the last week - it's gone through various transformations and I think that it's sort of okay… but maybe not… so any comments… thought…suggestions? Of course you can't see the surface so it's more difficult to judge.



I've also started to rework another painting… despite Steve Poole saying how much he liked it as it was .. sometimes you just know that its just not quite right and you either have to leave it alone and not look at it (probably a better idea) or take the plunge and attack it - which is what I have done…  
Of course you don't know what it looked like yesterday.

Working here the weather, the sounds, and the view from my studio get's into my head and affects the way I paint. I look out and recognise the images - the shape of the hills, the light reflected on the voe, the colours, and the movement of the clouds - even if I'm working from a drawing made elsewhere on Shetland. 

The end of the day…
