Oh, I really like this, JFD. The lift and angle of the yacht and the angle of her sails are just perfect. Superb detail on the rigging.

Ilike this too JD. Is it Long Island Sound?. Very nice movement and feel. The sky is superb

Thanks Bill. Yes it is L.I.S.
In fact the yawl is headed SW from Great Captain harbor. Thats Little Captain island in the back ground and L.I.S. beyond.
BTW thanks for the uploading info in the other thread.

Nice painting- I get the feeling it is one of those lousy days to be out there- Chilly, grey, and damp... Time to pop a reef in her, perhaps...

Ohhh... I really like this! Great job on the water and the details are superb! I live on the Chesapeake Bay and it looks like that outside right now. Brrrr!!

Chillly, grey and damp is right! But still wonderful...you can feel the cool air. Nice angle to the boat.

This is really good. Being a sailor myself, I know the feel of fighting the wheel on days like this. One comment. The main mast should extend to the deck.

It's me again. Looking closer, I do see the doghouse.
The jib lines up with the end of the doghouse which threw my eye off. May I suggest extending the jib and altering the color of the shadow. It's very similar to the color of the sky.
But you've definitely caught the moment.

Really good work again, nice movement and detail on the yacht. Do you use a liner brush for the rigging?

Br-r-r is right. You have captured the feel of that one wonderfully. :clap:
