DAILY PAINTING: After that first layer of paint dried, I had a chance to look at it and think about the painting. You can see that I created another layer with the palette knife, giving the painting alot more surface texture and variations.
I also darkened the value of the water nearest to the couple, adding some of the same dark blue as in the man's pants, to better unify that area.
I like the palette knife effect. To me, it seems to give more "life" to the painting.
