Another beauty, Alan. I really like the blues you are using in these paintings. The misty area beyond the landmass is very effective here.

I like the land and trees and the detailed boat against the stormy sky and choppy waves. Very nicely done.

I like it too. The landscape bits I really love. The sky reminds me of puffs from train engine when I was a small girl; just couldn't resist sharing that memory. LOL

Alan - what do I like about this painting? The looseness of the sky and sea, the details in the boats, the colors you've used throughout...in fact, everything! This painting conveys a feeling of bravery - that little fishing boat will make it through the storm and home with her catch! Bet she has a mighty good captain guiding her onward!
Beautiful!

Alan, this is so incredibly wonderful.

Your sky is just nifty. I like theprior reference to puffs of smoke from a train. And the detail on theboat is so beautifully done. I am not at all surprised it is already sold!!

Feel like I should talk in bucaneer-speak... you know... 'aare she blouws matey!

This has been a very enjoyable series Alan! I have liked every one of them... They each have their own special qualities that make them uniquely your style... I like the splashy waves in this one and the dark sky speaks for itself...

Alan, this is magnificent.

Did you know that if you turn your head to the right, there is a really scary face in the clouds? DOOOdoooDOOOdooo. It looks like it's ready to blow that boat right away.

Great work. Thanks for posting it.

I must admit. When I saw the first of these I was unsure if I liked the oreder and detail of the boat(s) with the looseness of sea, sky and landscape.

But, I think that was just the first of the three that I viewed. This one I am much more comfortable with. I think the man-made element is "crisp and contrived". The natural part is "wild and uncontrollable". That in itself makes a statement to me.

So in the end i give it two thumbs up!!! (One thumb is possum-injured tonight).......

In fact - I give it better than two thumbs up - I give it two ears and a tail as well.......

I meant "crisp and controlled" not "crisp and contrived". My bad.

Alan, your paintings are always so crisp and clean looking !! I guess painting with confidence helps ?? I noticed you used Bockingford paper ? I just bought some and don't like it . I guess I need to go back and try again ? I mean if it's good enough for the professionals > well................back to the drawing boards.
Your paintings are great . I wish I could afford one.

Thanks Jim sorry we cross posted.....yes I also didnt' like the paper at first but bought 50 sheets so by the time I got through it I liiked it for different resons.....keep working with it you also might grow to like it....not very good if you have to do much masking as its a soft paper and tears easy.
