Kenai Stages 7 & 9 - Added the trees in the foreground. After letting it sit overnight, I went back and added the color from the orange/brown water to the grass. Also to help pull the eye to the focal point I highlighted the trees in the distance. Then the final step was to add a purple wash to the orange/brown colored water. This cooled it down and also added color harmony to the painting. I have not decided it I will add 2 swans to the painting (as I originally thought I might. Will take another look after it has dried some.

Kenai Painting Stage 6 - Got a chance to spend a little time in the studio today. So worked in the Tree reflections, and the grass and Alder reflections. Then brought in the sky colors. Oh I forgot, I did do 3 glazes of Azo Green over the water first, to darkened the color some. I did that 3 days ago. Still have a ways to go, but will work on it when I get back from my First Friday Homer Art Show this Friday. Will drive down, take pictures and maybe a painting tomorrow.
