"Chords" - 8

the yellow, I have decided, is too intense, so muted it -

"Chords" - 7

a lesson yet to learn - when ye tired, rest... do NOT push on...

 yes, ink got spilt... fortunately was little left in the old bottle of processed yellow... still.... but is savable -
 there is refinement yet to do on the wave droplets. but the water is done... note needed to white parts of the sky as well as a bit of the water to do this, as otherwise the blue would have greened in that area...

 because parts of the railing was yellowed, decided to yellow the whole area of railing and sand, which then can have the tray darkened, and a diluted brown, perhaps umber, to layer over the railing... then can go and speckle in the sand - antelope brown and Indian yellow or yellow ochre...
ps - that is a glare on the background water - is really like the left all across...
