The scene I'm painting is more expansive than what I'm showing here, but this is where I am so far. I haven't hit on the right ocean color yet, the water needs more texture. The green is just an underpainting for the leaves. What I like about this photo is the warm and cool light. I'll add some more blue to the planter wall with a glaze. I also need to work on my edges to better convey depth of field. I'm really trying to match my colors. I started this painting 'pre-Mark'
