that being said, i did complete this painting by finishing the top of the mountain at the far right, the rest of the more foreground trees, and the foreground. i tried to adjust the values in the reflections in the lake but i still am not happy that got them"right". i was, however, starting to make a muddy mess of things and decided that it would have to stand as it is in this photo. i am going to call it done except that i may lift out some ripples and put in some dark streaks on the water surface at some time in the near future. i haven't made up my mind on that just yet. thanks for following.
