A great many glazes later and I can finally call this one finished. The land masses have been knocked back and the detail that was starting to creep into them have been faded out which I think has helped the feeling of depth. The water has had so many glazes that the spattered highlights now appear encapsulated into the paintings surface giving it more the appearance of light 'in' as well as 'on' the water. I think the effect is much more subtle.
I really enjoy painting these larger pieces but it is making for much less frequent blog posting.
