The Deep End of the Ocean

You know how it is..
Get an idea in your head and Make a Start only to quickly become disillusioned as you just can't translate it to the canvas.

Happens to me all the time.

But am particularly disappointed this time as I so ... SO ... wanted this to work.
But, hey-ho, have taken the huge ... MASSIVE ... step of hanging it on the wall anyway - but how long it will stay there remains to be seen.

I had, kinda, sorted wanted to portray the depth of the ocean but it just wasn't working.  

Sent a photo' to dearest nephew, Alfie who immediately saw something I hadn't even thought of ... turn it upside down to show distance, rather than depth!  Duh!  

I say, Duh! but I did keep turning it back the way I wanted for ages.

Worked on it some more.

Tweaked it. Pulled parts of it off and started again.

But finally decided Alfie was right and the ocean going off into the distance was how it was meant to be.

This has been hanging around for weeks now but I decided it was never going to turn out as I  hoped so figured it was time to call it a day.

SO ... PLEASE ...
Take me to the ocean for it's where I long to be.
