Dawn Treader At Dawn - Finished?

24" x 18" Oil on panel.

Coming back from vacation, I worked on the painting that was still on my easel. I changed some values all over the painting. I mainly lightened up the water and worked on the reflection of the sun back in the rippled water. I also worked some details in the boat, but stopped before I got too far past a suggestion. I think this is probably done. It has a nice punch with such a rainbow of colors. I left the last few strokes at the bottom of the sun reflection alone, since they captured how I remember Impression Sunrise. (It's interesting that my memory of the painting makes it more vivid; an interesting little "exhibit" on the painting is here.)
