Maui landscape update

 I was only going to paint the mountains but I ended up doing the whole thing in one go. It's a fairly small canvas, only 9x12 inches. I was feeling a little nervous where I left off yesterday, but have since then re-gained control. The goal is to paint alla prima; let it dry for at least seven days; and then add a second layer of paint for smaller details and fine tuning. 

It was difficult to get a good photo.

I managed to stay faithful to the value map and I love how the mountains came out, especially the patch of light. The colors are fairly faithful to the source photo.
