Help with Seascape Design Please!.. -- FINISHED

Hiya!.. Been working on this seascape which has slightly abstract elements. I had planned on adding a sand stencil (an element I used to use in some of my earlier works and recently thought I might explore using it again in different subject matter like this).

So I've come to the last stage of my painting where I would add the sand design but now I'm having second thoughts as to whether the piece would look better as is now...


Or with the sand (here is a rough idea of where I planned to add the stenciled sand using photoshop)

The sand would be basically the same colour as that shown.
(to give you an idea of the technique I would use -I'd lay down an opaque layer of white oil just in the parts I'd like it to be (more refined than the example shown) then sift fine sand over the top.. The sand would then just adhere to these painted parts... I really like this stenciled sand look but as I say I'm not sure if the piece would look better now as is or with the added sand..

It would really help to hear what you all prefer..!.. First image or second! Thank you!!..

Re: Help with Seascape Design Please!..

Okie,.. well a friend said they preferred the second with the sand, and I was just so eager to continue the piece... I went ahead and did it with the sand already.. haha.. sorry, I guess that makes this a dud post, but I'll post an image of the piece with the sand once it is dry enough to scan!..

I love the one with the sand! It has a beautiful golden glow to it and really enhances the picture. You made a great choice!

I like the sand in the second one but I would dull down the sand in the distance just a tiny bit more.
