Coming Along

This first photo is from about a week ago. I was attempting to create more dramatic lighting in the storm clouds, but pretty soon saw that even though the idea might have potential the clouds were far too distracting for this piece.

So I took some shades of gray and completely altered the mood and color of the clouds. It needs lots of work to smooth it out some and build continuity, but I'm much happier with the sky now. Of course, the water will need a grayer tone too.

The Scaup is nearly done, the wings (especially the right one) need to be detailed.
