Calm at the Lake rework progress

This is how the painting looked after I scraped back some of the pastel
And after the first stages of the block-in
And this is how it looks at the moment
I still need to work on it a while and will the update in a couple of days.

I used mainly Rembrandt pastel. This is now at the stage where I wish I had some softer pastel to give me a few juicy strokes.

I feel it already looks better compositionally, and would be interested in what you think or if you can see areas for improvement.
