Please excuse the quality of the image taken with my pocket camera, until I scan the original shortly and enable prints.

Original oil painting produced on stretched 91cm x 61cm canvas using a knife, mixing only on the canvas using a limited colour palette.

There's many more figurative, dance and portrait fine art original oil paintings, pastels and gicleé prints on my website: R Young Art

Thx Roz. No, they are shop bought, though I hate breaking in a new knife when one wears out as the are too flat, square edged and dreadful! Next time I will file it a little...
