A Progression… 19 | Sep

...of my latest painting. It starts with the sky painted over the contour line like transfer sketch. Next in the upper right, most of the first layer complete. In the lower left, the second layer of paint minus the marsh foreground is done. Finally the second layer of paint complete in the lower right.
