It's been a long time since Ive painted anything from imagination but here's my first attempt in a long while. After finishing and taking a step away from it for a while, a lot of things bug me. The ground that is hit by the spot light coming through the clouds seems wrong. All the clouds look wrong. There's no real separation from the sky and the water. All of these things, I don't know how to fix. I made a rule for my self to use no reference at all. I think it would be interesting to repaint this with reference some time in the future.
