|"Stone Wash" 9x12 study|
|22x16 block in|
I've included images of the block-in stage of the painting as well as the first stage of refinement. At this point, I will probably set the painting aside for a week or two and come back for finishing refinement with fresh eyes.
I hesitate to move onto another project when this one is going so well, but I always paint better if I let it sit for a while.
While the larger painting will be similar to the study, there will be some distinct differences. The pool at the bottom of the painting will hopefully appear much deeper than in the study and some of the foreground rocks will be eliminated.
