“Bay Edge” moving toward completion.

Finally at the stage where the colors are generally established, and it’s a real pleasure to move through and make specific adjustments. The source image is a bit of a paradox…very complex and busy on close inspection, but with an overall sense of quiet solidity when seen at a glance. There is also the very fundamental problem of establishing the web of lights as being under the water…on the shallow bottom. I’m also trying to establish subtle patterns of cool vs. warm lights in the whole lower section.
