Ok finally got around to working on this painting again tonight. Decided to work on the middle ground water section. I mixed ivory black with white to make a mid tone grey, my tinting color I mix with most colors. Then I mixed a nice olive green using that grey and yellow ochre. Darkening it with more ivory black and lightening it with zinc white when needed. Laid it down blocking it in and covering the previous paint completely. I like the tone and it suits the scene make better. Works well with the other colors and ties the whole picture together. After this, the horizon landscape needed to be adjusted too. I've applied the similar color to the trees and land. Works better. Also straightened the horizon line. I'm thinking of calling this piece The Vessel with Relics. Just a thought at the moment.
