Time to go

Time to go. Two figures leaving a beach as evening draws in. An oil study on paper using impasto gel for heavy textural effects. The gel sets up very quickly and I would normally use a sturdier support such as a panel, when putting down heavy impasto, to avoid the possibility of any cracking in the future.
