The Government Wharf - progress

The Government Wharf in progress
24" x 24" oil on wood panel
                  Little drops of water wear down big stones. (Russian proverb)
I'm working my way across this painting of an algae covered wharf and love creating the colour changes.  Once across the palings and reflections, I can start on some details that provide the texture.

Working through complex paintings, its easy to mentally shut down and convince yourself to give up. Keeping that vision in your head and working methodically through the less interesting parts to reach detailing is crucial in creating art.
