I was able to finally cover the whole canvas during this last September/October, finishing the upper right and the stream's far bank. as well as refining the main glitter/glare area some. During those sessions it started asking me for some adjustments to the center water, as well as the left bank, which is where I started this piece. This is a part of what I love about painting with the subject in person, it is so convincing the way it can say: "A little more like this," while showing you what it's talking about.

Here is my easel at work after my last session in October. It is slightly funny to notice that the rounder a rock is, the more likely it is to roll when the high water events rearrange things. My approach is to leave what I have where I like it, and add any newcomers that make a good impression. My goodness, it was a good year for grass to grow in the moss ... a little like seeing an old friend who now has a wig? : >)
