Limpid - the end is in sight
I'm working towards the finish of this painting, adding details that bring it to life.
I love this stage of a painting. Well mostly. There are some sections that I have to talk myself into completing simply because they are repetitive and a bit tedious, such as picking out subtle values on the water surface and darker shading of tiny waves and ripples. Patience and the ability to let my mind concentrate only on the particular section that I am working on at the time help.
A few more hours of detail work and I'm hoping to call it complete then move onto the next piece. There are a few ideas in my head, but I haven't made a firm decision on what's going to be on the easel next.
