Just in case you thought you have to labour over your artworks, here is a little item I just finished (sorry the paint is still wet so there is a bit of glare).
Acrylic on board. Painted from start to finish in an hour! No preliminary sketches, straight out of my head! Nice and fresh, with lots of broad loose brush strokes.
I actually like this one so much I have framed it and am putting it in for assessment! Sorry Jon, but you did say I could put in as many paintings as I like!!! 😉
