I can see for miles and miles and miles

Although I really want to work on my art this evening I find I can't.

Here's progress on my most recent piece. I'm not so pleased with it. I began it differently to my usual method, and though I quite like the effect in some areas, I'm not convinced by the whole. Last night I added some more colour to the tree in the hope of finding some definition, but my enthusiasm for this piece is dying on me.

Here's a new piece, or rather an old piece I began last year. Actually, it began as the gounding for a seascape, but I've diverted it, via Sidcup.

I've had some new specs today, so now I can see for mile and miles. But creeping Presbyopia keeps the detail at bay. Unless I take off my specs and look at life with frameless, uncorrected grey tinged reality.

I love the tree piece! It's lovely with that rich brown on the trunk!
