Cherry blossom

Cherry blossom 60 x 76cm Initial stage
Painting this I have been conscious to keep the marks fluid and so the painting has to be done in one go. The next stage will be more considered and I will paint in a weather vane in the background.

Street in Morocco at dusk

Street in Morocco at dusk (Tauroudant)
Image size 50 x 60cm Oil on canvas

I have changed the central figure to a woman wearing a turquoise costume. The sun quickly went behind Tauroudant's city wall.
In the background was a small square where goods were traded to the locals. To the left of this figure was Bab Zorgane (an arched gateway) leading to the bus station beyond the city wall.
