Really nice Malcolm, great textures 😃

Its a great painting and the textures must be from this technique. I walked past this view the other day and thought "Naah, your not ready for this yet". So well done Malcolm you've shown a terrific line and method here.

Old painting done with thinned oils on rag watercolour paper and overpainted with watercolour- must try this technique again.
