Where's the Lads?  16" x 16"  Oil

The brief today was to make Christmas cards, so, as I don't do Christmas, I did this, from a photo taken at Cromer.
I really like using the board for the beach, and now I'm wondering if using a proper sheet of wood, instead of this MDF, or hardboard, would make an even better painting, because of the grain.

The topic was 'Chinese Painting', where we were given a few basic guidelines, and step-by-step fish, to copy.
Well, we all had a go, and we all felt we just didn't have the knack!
No-one else wanted to publish.

I would love to be proficient at this technique, but with watercolour on watercolour paper. I fear I am way too lazy and impatient to put in the necessary practise.
