sketch in my sketch book. I will work from back to front. I always work upright on an easel.
foreground rocks - my paper is dry.

Here is a close up of the face. Color not good on this one either. At least I like it better than yesterday's.

Here is a close up of the figure. I don't know how I feel about this painting so I thought I would photo it (I can always see problems better this way) and let it sit for awhile before it is 2 feet thick with stuff!

I posted this painting (top version) on e-bay and it didn't sell. I took a good look at it and decided it was just ho-hum and needed work to make it a better painting. The second image is the reworked painting. I extended the tree line and made it less static on the top - making it a real tree line. I added a little bit of land on the far right for balance. I changed the color of the water and changed the formation of the foreground rocks. The two openings in the rocks were too similar and I didn't like the placement of the top opening - the rocks are much better now. Last I added a few seagulls.
