Now that the water is blocked in, it is time to start on the penguins.
Since I am working in the middle of my oil painting (which is wet), I have installed my uprights to hold my horizontal handrest.
Before I got too far on the penguins, I had to fix something that was bothering me in the background. If you look at the first image on this post, in the upper left corner the dark shape (the rocks of Antarctica) hit the water in a point. I found this distracting especially since it was so similar to the shape between the penguins. In this image, you can see I covered the very lowest of the rocks with snow.
