Like most paintings you can race along and get 90% done quite quickly, it’s that last 10% that can take weeks if not months; those final small details or adjustments that bring the painting to life, the finishing stage to make it worthy of a signature.  I admit some paintings never make it that far.

So with this one I set it aside and found the water needed to be simplified a bit, some of the highlights were taken out.  I also painted two ducks in there to give it some life and threw in some birds flying up against the cliffs.

I’ll put it aside again and look at it with a fresh eye, through this process I can get the painting up to the level I want it to be at.
