I blew up the last of the 3 oil sketches to 42"x35", working quickly and cleanly. I mixed my pigments to make this, I'm really enjoying this method it reminds me of picking my home grown herbs when I cook. I like to make everything from scratch, I feel it's me.  I also get a lot of paint to play with.
It took me a couple of hours and I've left it alone. I'm not sure about the sky, looks a bit odd, like a crown but I feel I must trust the feeling I had when painting it and leave it alone. There's something magical about being inspired, it's like a gust of wind, it comes and then it goes.
