This is another WIP that I have already completed about ships in the port. It is also painted on Arches paper 35 x 25 cm approx. Please let me know your comments. However I cannot answer till night. Thank you.

The finished painting:

Lovely boat and foreground water, Dolors - not sure about the boats in the background.

Hi Dolors,

Your foreground boat and water are beautifully painted. I like the colors you used in them a lot.

Since this is a WIP, I assume you haven't finished painting the boats in the background yet. When you add color there, it will help draw the viewer's eye farther into the painting.

Nice composition and I lke te way that the rope leads one right to the big boat. The boat and the water are very nicely painted too.

I am not sure about the yellow in reflection of the white boats...

but overall it's a very nice painting

Like the forground boat, like the water but am a little confused about where the main source of light is coming from, should there be shadow on one side of the large boat........very American!!

Keep painting

Thank you Mary-Ann, Lyn, Doug, Sylvia, Mia, Uschi, Pam, Olga and David.
You are right, the background boats are too light, I did the painting from a photo taken with some mist so the background is not clear and the boats are white with little colour, anyway I will try to add some colour to them. Thank you for your help, I will post the final painting.

Dolors... your water, reflections and big boat are excellent! Please post the finished painting after you add some colour to the distant boats!
