Fossil paintings

I haven't painted since my trip to Norfolk in April - and I still haven't shared all the pieces I finished while I was there - so I was feeling a little down when I unearthed these this evening.

I painted these in Cambridge, probably not long before we moved, and forgot about them.

Two 8' x 8' canvases, gesso primer slashed with a putty knife, acrylics and watercolour washes

I don't know. They're okay, I guess. I was trying to create impossible creatures - things that might look real at first glance, but then wrong on closer inspection. I succeeded at that, anyway, but the execution falls short of the vision.
