'Tide marks' oil on cypress, 19cm x 20.5cm, 7.5" x 8.25" © David Begley 2011

Painted on a small panel of cypress wood given to me by sculptor and carpenter Paul Turner based in Waterville, Co Kerry. The wood comes from a cypress planted in 1870 at Westonbirt, England. This work has been painted over 10 layers of sanded Gesso, in successive thin layers of oil and oil glazes.
