new oil in progress

This is the start of my latest oil painting of a pair of avocets.here you can see that once the design has been drawn out on the board ive underpainted the water areas with a grey tone in preparation for the detailed top coat of oil.In the lower picture the top coat is well underway and the top picture shows the painting at the end of the day with the water completed.The next stage will be to re-define the birds and there reflections with a thinned underpainting before proceeding with the detailed top coat.
