'Easterly Gale - Albert Head'

This my effort from this mornings excursion to a
gale blown Albert Head. Unlike a few hardier souls,
this old soldier painted inside the truck.
This was my first from behind the windshield and
I will need to get a better set-up for next time.
Oil on wood panel 9 x 12.
Thoughts & comments always appreciated.

"Little Brown Pot" oil 11 x 14

A plein Air painting done behind a glass door looking out - I have been watching DVDs by the late Helen van Wyk whose style arises out of the classic European painters. She was quite the gal, and I learned a lot  from her many amusing tips. R.I.P. Helen.
This is my own still life arrangement which I approached using her precepts.
