Transparency

Some things are easier than others when it comes to painting and trying to get water to look transparent is not one of those easy things. Still – I ‘m fairly pleased with my latest painting – I think I’ve managed to settle the seaweed under the water . I could find fault but today I’m just going to celebrate the parts that worked!

Here it is as it progresses:

Blocking in the mountains

Adding some trees and the beginnings of the water.
15167097876483
In with some seaweed masses

Seaweed refined
