'Avocet and chick' 15" x 10" oil on canvas

Ive always admired artists who produce lovely loose oil sketch works that seem to say everything necessary in a quick work and not get carried away with 'unnecessary' detail.
I thought I'd have a go at producing a little oil sketch from some of my references obtained at Titchfield Haven NNR of an Avocet and chick.Its all been completed in one layer of paint over two sessions and I have to say that I'm really pleased,not only with the results but also with the painting process itself which I found very liberating after my usual heavily-worked pieces.
