Oil weeks 3 and 4

Since my last post I’ve had 2 more lessons to work on my oil painting. The above is the current state.

I strengthened the lake to have a thicker layer of oil as the previous attempt was a bit weak with the canvas showing through in places. In the future I will overlay this with lighter paint, and add highlights to show the water.

Most of the work done has been in the sky. The upper section has been made darker, and the lower section lighter. Both sections have had some texture applied to them to give the impression of cloud layers.

There is still much work to do.
