I'm happy to report that I've survived my most difficult challenge! This is the largest oil painting I've done to date. Since it was too large to complete in just a few sessions, it was almost like painting several paintings, within a painting. I would say that I had the most fun with the water.... and today, repainting the mountains and the sky to better suit the painting as a whole, was a pleasure! OK... the boat in the foreground was quite a challenge! Do you think I pulled it off?
