While on the water I did a fast sketch of a friends boat then at home painted it. I will do it again because I didn't like the way I did the figures. What I'm asking is do you like the composition and colours? any suggestions would be appreciated. on langton 140.11x15.davinci paints.

Lovely sky James. Take care to make the horizon level. I think the boat could be a different colour below the waterline, but then again it is your friend's boat. I think the composition is fine.

I wonder about putting some shades of blue-green or blue-violet in the water to create depth.
