Here's where I'm stopping for today. The Kentucky Derby is on soon, and I want to watch it!
I've decided to make the cloud an elongated form, so it doesn't look a cotton ball right in the middle of the scene. I hope the client doesn't mind!
You can see I'm saving the water until later in the painting......I almost always do water last in scenes like this. I want to make sure the rest of the painting is working, first.
