My latest, 100cm x 75cm Acrylic on canvas panel.
Don't know if I'm really finished, tomorrow I'll probably have another look.
I've been busy creating my website instead of painting....Oh dear not enough time.

Wow....beautiful painting. Has a great feeling and atmosphere!

I saw your website too. Took some time loading, maybe because it's still under construction. Nice animation while loading!
Your website looks very well, my compliments on it! Nice paintings, especially the one of your grandson. :clap:

Thank you Andre, Paula, Latha and Susan for your comments. I am going to
repaint the boulder as I have been told it looks like a big sponge. (give it some hard edges )

Have to agree - everything looks good - just that rock needs a bit more definition , as you intend.

You are on the right track on the rock. Great painting, and I too like your website.

Very nice Paul! The perspective in the foreground ripples add a lot of depth. Clouds and sky are great. Like the distant headlands. Good use of compliments rocks against water. One minor suggestion would be to cool the more distant boulders to push them back a bit more. Enjoyed!

Well, Paul, I think this is super. I agree, that the rock should have more definition. I would put a touch of green or lighter blue in the foreground water. It looks 'rather deep'. Otherwise , this is a glorious place which I would give anything to visit.

Thank you Neil, Karen, Nan, Rob, Chammi and Gayle for your comments. I am repainting all the rocks with great frustration, they will be 3D soon if I keep repainting, but I'll get there or bust.

Wonderful sky, foam and water! Perhaps the rock reflection could be a shade darker? I think it would make the rock "heavier".

Yay! After much ado ...... finished.
Thank you all, the tips all help to see things I missed.

It's very realistic and you've captured the sunlight on the rock brilliantly.

Your rocks are now much rockier Paul!
I like this painting -water's very good - can I nit-pick?
Far off rocks need toning down a little and the reflections of the big rock need some attention - for me, they don't relate to the big rock enough :)

Thank you Maureen and Kathie, yep those faraway rocks will be tamed down.
The reflection? I may make some minor touches but I don't want to repaint
that whole area again. hmmmm?????
