The piece I am working on at the moment is in evening sun with long shadow, this means there is a large area that is in dark shadow. I have tried applying a dark grey wash over this area to allow all the detail below to show through, but I am having difficulty applying it evenly, I have got a problem with lapping and the more I go over it to cover up the dark lapping the darker the shadow gets. It is now a bit too dark. I have thought about using a damp sponge but the painting is almost complete and I don't want to spoil it, so any advice would be very much appreciated.
