daily painting practice - painting wet rocks is a slippery ordeal

work still  in progress
oil on canvas

Rocks, fog, moving waves ... I have painted them over and over and over and I am not  satisfied. That is, I am not satisfied at this moment.
The thing that is driving me crazy  on this one is that  sometimes I love how the painting feels...an hour later I come back and  it looks stiff and unfinished.    agggghhhh! the price I must pay  to the painting gods.

Here's another I am starting just to keep my sanity.   Sometimes a little diversion helps.

That will be a special one - like all of your brushes I guess...
