Jan, very peaceful--IMO could use a little more shadow under the chair to ground it.:)

....Jan, you do great grass clumps!!! :clap:

Is there any way you could post a larger version of this? It looks interesting but it's hard to make out the details and images in the distance. It would be easier to comment and critique :)

Really lovely scene. I can really feel the swell of the ocean in this piece. Would like to see a bit more contrast.

Hi Jan,
I really like this. I especially like your sky. I hope you don't mind but I put this on my computer and adjusted the brightness, and contrast, etc.

Jan, after looking at the post I made, I think I darkened it a tad bit to much. But I was just to give you a look at how it might look if you added more contrast. I think your orginal is still a great job.

I think this is excellent I would say only the chair needs to be darker the rest is OK the electronic adjustments were too vivid brought everything forward, the name of the painting is solitude and that is what the quieter tones are saying, a little bit of contrast on the chair will be fine---------well done------------Alan
