Glade Creek Grist Mill - WIP 4

Here is the little apparent progress made after three hours of painting yesterday. I am approaching all of these stages slowly, but I thought after three hours it would have more added than is apparent here. Anyway, I am slowly glazing on colors for the rocks and stonework of the mill, adding more detail to the wood in the building, etc. I love the detail work but it takes time to do it as I want to. I see so many hard edges in the underpainting of the rocks that I may have to switch to doing the water and rocks next just to soften those edges and not have to see them anymore. I still have to define the stonework mortar in the building and waterwheel support wall but might wait on that until after I attack those rocks in the water.

You're working it, girl, and the work shows. Nicely done and I'll be watching to the grand finale.
