9 whole pictureNearly there!  Several tints have been added, building up the sky. I've tried to make the clouds softer with more dimension, while giving some perspective to them which I hope will give the painting depth.  As well as this, I have added final tints on the sails, finalised and tightened up the detail in the background and added detail to the sea, which hopefully gives a little more movement.  Just final detail such as the rigging to go over the sail tints and we're done.

rhsBackground boats are added and final details are put on to the rest of the fleet.





lhsThe sky is adjusted to try and give perspective and depth.  I've then tightened final details on the background.  Thankfully that's now done!!
