Detail; I'm working on the wet sand. The foreground pebbles are complete. Tone and colour are particularly critical here if I am to achieve the desired effect of wet sand so I have spent quite a bit of time mixing colours and trying them out on the painting, making minor adjustments along the way until I was happy with the colour range.

Hey Chris,
Great colour balance in this piece, very convincing. The large, almost featureless, areas of a painting must present one of the biggest challenges. The empty spaces are often as important as the subject though.

all the best,
Jason

Hi Chris

Looking very good, those bergy bits look a real challange. What support are you painting on? looks like gesso rolled on MDF

Hi Paul, yeah the ice is a bit of a challenge but having studied the effects of light on/in ice I've come to understand it - makes it a lot easier to paint.
You're bang on with the support, although I've just finished another painting on canvas, which I enjoyed using much to my surprise. This picture will appear on the South Georgia page of my website in the next few days.
Best,
Chris
