So far have applied 6 steps dark in the water area. and 3 steps in the darkest orange (red). No blending applied just yet. Can you see the color illusion that the dark orange sky against the dark stain and to the water in the foreground that has created in this piece already? Looking forward to the sunburst coming through the clouds on the horizon in a very warm atmosphere, coming soon. The new stain color I am using is my own version using W&N, inspired by the new Geneva Canvas Stain that Mark designed.
