In the process of painting, there is often a point at which I really like the underpainting. It might be a calligraphic brushstroke or sloppy swaths of colour, but something makes me really happy, and I am tempted to leave the painting at that state. This is one of those moments. It’s clearly not finished, but there is something I find satisfying about the sketchy outlines of the rocks and wave below the cool, smooth fog and iceberg. That’s one of the reasons I take photos as I go- to reassure myself that I have done the right thing by continuing to paint!
