Love the colours and the roughness of your strokes. They seem so spontaneous, and yet in a way controlled and deliberately placed, if that makes sense. Very cool stuff =]

Thank you! I think you're right about that, I think that looks lends itself from painting a lot of alla primas back when I first started painting. I would always try to make the correct stroke the first time around. It's a good habit I've always tried to break, but couldn't! : )
