Great sky and great rendering. Hope the dude in the boat doesn't take his dingy into wavy water! The keel on that thing must be at least as long as the sail mast is tall!

The patience you must have had for the water...

Thanks Thomas,
When I took up painting some two and a half years ago I was so impatient to get the job done, doing everything a breakneck speed, too quick to call it finished and it showed in the standard of the work I was producing.
In that time I have learnt so much from my friends on this forum, from valuable advice received to just studying their work. However the one thing I have learnt myself is to have patience and again I think it shows in my work.
Cheers,
Steve.
