I'm not a marine painter but every once in a while I like to try painting one.
This was done from a photograph taken up in Crescent City, CA. 11x14, 140# Arches WC Block.

Good arial perspective and detail on the boats. Looks like you are a fine marine painter to me. :) :clap:

I think this is a very attractive composition. I love the way you've done the back hills too.

This is a lovely marine painting, Maria. You've got lovely DOF - the hills in the distance really do look distant. A very pleasant scene. :clap:

Thank you Joy, Jamie and Mari.

I'll have to do somemore of these. I did have quite a few but I've sold them or given them away to friends.

Hi Maria,
Nice watercolour with good depth. The clutter of a jetty or harbour is a perfect setting for inspiration.
