Sweet picture ! However, take your picture and put it into a photo editing program and move the color saturation guide to black and white . I suspect that you will find that you need to get some of your values darker and some of the whites more effective so that you have a better range . That is a problem that I face a lot , so I am sensitive about it !

I think that you have a very nice painting here, but I would call it "Beached" instead of at anchor. I'm not sure about altering the values. I can't find fault with them. I think that your painting has a good range of values. I just wonder why so many people paint on such small canvases. This would work on a 24 x 30 canvas and look pretty hanging on a wall over the fireplace.

What Wendy has done above is exactly right. Cos your tree for example was a triumph as was the boat but nothing gave the Aussie sense of light - looked to soft.

This is the final version...I don't want to overwork it.
I do appreciate the comments/critiques. I'm already thinking about doing a larger painting using the same idea (motive).

It's great as it is. You're right, don't overwork it.
