Final update for Burrows Bay

Started finalizing this piece. Boldly changing colors of water to be lighter for lighter part. Also defining edges of tree top lines of the island. It shouldn't take long to finish this from here.

Bleachers are roughly in

Although steps are not even, I put all levels of benches into the background bleachers. When I adjust values in the area, I can also adjust steps so I can forget about them a while. Instead, put my focus back on the horse and the rider.

Back-to-back-to-back update

I kept working on this painting tonight. And suddenly I felt it's almost done. Although each individual part is rough and unfinished. Instead of digging each individual part and making each precise, I'll pick some annoying parts and put thicker paint & bolder marks on those parts. That could make damages to this but could potential make this very interesting.
Let's try...

back to back update

After I went to SAM with my friends to see European Masters exhibit again, I got motivated well tonight. Then worked on the unfilled part of water surface and log fence in foreground. Since I made a good batch of color for the log fence, I continued to the dead standing tree.

Some progress on the island

Not much but some progress was made on Burrows Island. I'm still not satisfied with the outcome but I'll move on to foreground next.

Finally got back to painting

After long absence, I finally got back to this painting by putting bold values&marks on the trees on the island.The colors are a little off but I'll refine them again and again anyway. So I don't worry much. I'm more concering about the value&color balance/contrast with the other parts. The green must be much deeper and highlight should be lighter than the background hills.
By the way I figured the name of the high hill in the background is called Mt. Erie.
