I'm getting close to finishing this painting and I think I could use some critiques at this point. I'm posting the initial sketch as well as the latest progress. I'm not sure whether I want to keep the lighthouse from the sketch or not. On one hand it gives the painting some scale, on the other hand it might be a distracting human element and compete as a focal point. I also need to finish the wings, rocks, waves and the tentacles above the water surface. Any other comments would be great as well.
Oh, and the color is a bit too yellow in this photograph- there are blue ambient reflections that I'm afraid just can't be seen here because they look like they are the same green color as everything else.
