Ode to the Samurai

I'm glad that this painting is finished now, as I've spent more time on it than anticipated. It can be a strange feeling having just finished a painting which you have worked particularly long and hard on. A feeling of detachment, ordinariness. The best thing for it is to do something loose in my sketchbook, something random from the imagination. Then its onto the next piece... There are things that please me about the painting, but some elements of it never entirely satisfied me. It's paintings such as these that really expose your limitations I think...
