I hesitated in showing my work in progress because honestly I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to rocks and water. This is literally a learn as I go. This is the hardest painting I have ever attempted. I started on the right side rocks first. I was trying to decide whether to stop and start something else. But then today I started on the left side and feel better. I still have work to do on the water. Plus, if I have time, go back to the right side rocks. I also tried a new surface. I took mdf board and painted two coats of gesso. Then I painted one coat of Gamblin Oil ground. That stuff is like marshmallows from the jar. I did thin it down. I waited seven days before painting on it but should have wait ten. The paint dries almost as soon as I touch the paint to it. I'm thinning with OMS. I don't have much of Mark's paint left so I'm using other paint straight. But it's still kind of neat to paint on. Don't ask me to explain why. I don't think I have the words.
