Building from the ground (water?) up

Well, we don’t have a cottage yet, but the architect says we will soon. 😊 When the second half of the painting is close to done I will probably stop to see how well it melds with the first half. Maybe some adjustments necessary, maybe not.

In the meantime, here’s the answer to the question posed in my first post about this project–which was, can anyone guess what thing in common in both of these paintings gave me the most grief when drawing them?

Answer: the dock. Both original photos had objects (in the case of Willow Pond, it was a person) on the dock, making it a chore to see the angles clearly and to guess what the shape and surface really looked like.
