This is my second attempt at Stoney Adirondack Lake. I took into account all the suggestions and advice that was given to me on my first attempt. I’m not sure if I like this one any better than the first one. The reflections did come out better but they are still not great. I tried doing the submerged rocks using various shades of Gray gesso over black gesso on the bottom portion of the canvas. I just used liquid white on top and sort of blended it into the black. I used a thin coat of linseed oil over the gesso and then made a sort of glaze using dark sienna mixed with Indian yellow, and VanDyke brown near the transition to deep water. Again, I am soliciting your input and opinions, specifically if you think the second painting is an improvement over the first. Thank you in advance for your help!
