Oliver's Island - stage 2

The tonal underpainting for "Oliver's Island" is now finished. Actually this is the second time I've painted this location, an island on the Thames near Strand On The Green. This time though I intend it to be much more vague and mysterious as I am only using the basic shapes of the landscape under a night sky with just a touch of moonlight hitting the tops of the clouds. There will be a few lights on the shore to the left picked out from the blue dimness `a la Whistler and his Nocturnes. 
I used the same mix of Burnt Sienna and Manganese Violet thinned with Liquin as Stage 1 to finish off the underpainting.
