Can you hear me now?

 
It really really is the end of the palette now and I'm ready to move on to a new piece.  If only I can decide which one and in what medium.  Sometimes there are just too many choice to make a decision and then nothing happens!

So to finally finish off the remains of the paint on the palette, I did a quick 20 minute study of this crow who is obviously trying to tell me something.  Probably something along the lines of  'Just get on and do it!'  Setting time limits works well to free up brush strokes and decision making in painting otherwise I can get swept up into detail and fiddly changes.
