Continuing on yesterday's theme of positive and negative, here is the work thus far. A bit more definition and delineation on the dock and additional elements of the positive aspect of the work are helping to draw the eye into and around the work. The flatness of the water, even considering the bit of reflection in the upper right, acts as a 'foil' or backdrop for everything else that is going on in the work, forcing, I hope, the viewer's eye to stay with the movement of the other elements; the boats leading up to the dock, the lines of the planks and the angle of the stair element and its shadow, leading you to the prime subject. Enough parssing for today!
