Slow Progress

For those who are interested:

I finally got the water textured approximately how I want it to be. It isn’t quite what i was looking for, but it’s going to be good enough. I don’t think I have the right brushes or the extreme patience needed for what I originally had in mind.

I need to touch up the shadows in the water on the left hand side and make them more jagged/sharp/rough.

Then I just need to fill in the water hyacinths and the overhanging tree.

My impressions as I come closer to completing it: For a first attempt at painting with oils, I would say it is coming out pretty well. There are things about it that bother me, but I am not a professional artist and at this point I am afraid that if I go back to fix some of the stuff, I will just end up making it worse.
