Redcar Beach working progress Oil Painting

This a view facing south on Redcar beach, with the cliffs of Saltburn, Boulby and Staithes in the distance.
It's a working progress, I'm still trying to paint on all the pebbles in the foreground.
I think the ramp in the foreground is too dominant in the picture, I need to put something in front of it or paint it out I think.

Any advice would be great?

Still life with Oils

My first oil painting on canvas board. 
I figured that a still life painting would be a good place to start using oils.

This was the working in progress.

There are bits I know I need to work on, but hopefully I'll get better with time.
