Lake Wakatipu completed
I have added warmth to the sky and highlights on the mountains and worked on the foreground rocks and water.
The black background has been good for this area however I think I will stick to white canvas in future.

Starting to get some detail into the painting .
Painting in the rocks – some of which will be covered with a blue wash later
to look as though they are under the water.

I have never painted on a black background before and am finding it hard at first to see the colour on the canvas.
I have roughly blocked in my composition .
