The wip (work-in-progress): the dry state

I scraped off the paper, washed the panel with fresh 1:1:1 and started again.  maybe i will try again tomorrow.  the tide keeps changing, tomorrow i should have at least 2 horus before it has changed too much.  then, i will have to start another painting.  i need to just look at the painting as painting and realize i will never replicate the beauty and complexity of my source material.  the pic of the view follows.  and no, i don't paint from photographs, although a pic can simplify the masses and bring understanding.  it's the color experience that is wanting in my work today.  tomorrow may be better, or not.  and this panel may need to be trashed.  will see.
