Latest in a series of small (10x10cm) canvases depicting scenes from the east coast of Scotland. All C&Cs very welcome as always. The image should appear about life-size on your monitor.

wonderful looking . if you wish a smooth finish you can sandpaper the canvas and put a coat of gesso down and take a sheet rock knife and lay it down as flat as you can and float the gesso let it dry and sand it with fine sandpaper. do this two more times going in differ directions. and sand with fine between coats and the finish coat too. take off the dust and paint then. just a idea from the 17th century
I do like the canvas look also.

Everything about it is right: keeps my eye exploring; great colour harmony; even the signature is placed just right. One of the nicest small works I've seen in a while. Cheers,
