Oil Painting Work in progress #5 the water

I start out light… this is not the way most painters start… Usually you would start out with the darks, but since I have a bit of a tendency to paint very dark I have decided to apply this paint in reverse.
I don’t want to use a plan (believe me I know all the methods for applying paint and planning a painting and this works best for me) I like to allow intuition or what ever you want to label it, be my muse.

All I have decided is I want a wave of water and a geisha. Perhaps I may add other asian type symbols into the piece… some of these may be a ginkgo leaf, or a maple leaf, we’ll see if they end up in the final painting.
