The one above is less resolved but I want it to be a rainy day with those wonderful rays in the sky and an overally shiny wetness. At the moment I'm not happy with it as it's too hard edged but subsequent layers will add lost and found edges - parts where the sea and sky are equal in tone and the edge softens and more relections with the confusion of surface that they produce.

They are evolving as I go, things are being moved about, areas retained and other areas simplified or changed and this will continue. With these I'm winging it - working out as I go, responding to the painting and the marks I've made and pushing it to achieve (hopefully) the mood, weather, tide, time, season that I had in mind.
feedback welcome :)
