Well done Robert - love the title. I was thinking 'Message in a Bottle', but I was trying to work out how I would get a piece of rolled paper in it.

Robert, I really like the quick get in and get out method with this scene. Excellent!

Thank you everyone
Yep Kate I wanted to put a tresure map inside the bottle too but I di it very quickly maybe 45 minutes
Anyway this morning before to continue the pastel I'm working on I decided to play with them over the sketch I just share the experiment with you

Great work Robert - love the sky. I played with pastels over mine but didn't work out as well as this.

Wonderful addition of the pastel integrates the dark clouds and pulls the whole painting together. It is now a painting, and a lovely one at that. Great reflections too.

like this and really like what adding the pastel did to it.
