Working with the Clipper Ship...

You would think that the easiest things to paint would be the parts that have no order. I don't think so. They seem to be the hardest for me. The most frustrating. I am working on a clipper ship painting for my husband and it has gone through many transformations since I started... Here is the run down so far... 




After this one - I stopped. The sky became muddy and looked like a mother ship.. I didn't like it. It just wasn't "my sky". So I set it on the floor and started over... 



Then I got this far and stopped. I didn't like anything about this either. My sky just wasn't right the way either. It had no reason to me. Just looked like a bunch of paint here and there.. I wanted more depth. So .. I didn't want to start over again so this time I just painted over that sky and around the boat... 


MUCH BETTER I thought.. But now the water is no good. I painted over it all ... painted in some stuff. Didn't like it. Painted over it again... Finally I felt it was better... 



Here it is as it sits on the easel right now.. I am letting it dry so that I can add all the detail to the ship. All the ropes and such that are to be hanging off, no way can I do it without a steady hand! So I will wait.
