Out of blue..

Since I ran out of blue paint a while ago, but still wanted to paint some water, I tried painting a sunset lake today.

I used about four or five hours painting it, spending a lot of time trying to make the dilapidated dock look good. It

went so-and-so. I may also have missed quite a bit regarding the shadowing from the dock, which may have been painted in a straighter line.

However, I tried using lenin oil for the first time today, and I´m really happy with the possibilities it gives you in putting in details on the painting. The light in the ocean, the light on the dock, the waves, everything is easier to put in with lenin oil, without ruining the colors beneath. To be able to paint over paint that way really makes it all look a bit better.
