Experiments in oil

The last time I worked in oil was 18 years ago, in high school.
This holiday I got a chance at last to buy some oil paints and start a painting.
I'd like to say it's like riding a bike...maybe just a little.
So here my first oil painting WIP. I'm pretty happy with it so far.
I've made a lot of mistakes in the process, but I've learnt a lot and I cant wait to finish this one and start another!
I still have to push the background back a bit more, I think, and detail the figures in the back a bit more.

I'm definitely going to have to figure out where to get these photographed...or I'll have to get a proper camera.
