I'm a little dissatisfied with the outcome. But I know well that my skill is not that good to come up with an attractive painting with this subject matter and composition. I need to move on to the next challenge. I might come back to similar subjects in the future though.

At this point, then, I realized the position of canvas is too high. I can always lower the tripod, but it would make the palette surface too low. This was a little bit design mistake. I'm now making the side bar on the canvas holder, where the binocular holder bites on, higher to lower the holder. Making the palette surface higher is too much backward work at this stage.

Since I applied and accepted by Parklane Gallery in Kirkland, I need to produce more paintings monthly basis. So I spent good time this weekend and worked on this in wet-in-wet manner, which I think the key to finish quicker. The outcome would be quite different compaired to my normal way, glazing or scambling over dried layers, though. I even touched Sauvie Sky as well.
