First I did Still remembered Fathome in all Acrylic using a limited palette.
Then all the suggestions that came in I tried it again using watercolors and just white acrylic. I scanned my first try then it looked too much like the first painting I did I reworded it using more suggestions on how the boat should look and more of a palette. It was fun and I could keep reworking it but I decided to stop and see what your opinons were to this watercolor version of Fathome.
Now if I could only download the painting from my floppy I would be in business, I am having a terrible time of it.

At least I have the reworked painting of Fathome in watercolor. My original wc looked almost like the one I did in acrylic. I used more of a palette and changed the vessel as per some suggestion by members of Wet canvas.
HOw does this work for you?

I like it MaryAnn. You've got real power in the waves and the additional hints of colour in the foreground are just right.

Wow, this is powerful. I really really wouldn't want to be in that ship. :(

Hi Mary Ann,
The composition is still powerful in this, emphasising the size and wildness of the ocean against a small ship. Your bigger palette is noticeable in the waves and is very effective in increasing the depth and interest in the water. Good work.

Mary Ann this is a breathtaking piece. There is so much movement in it that my eye journeys about enjoying every bit of it.
Your composition is such that as I think I'm leaving the painting I am led right back in.
Excellent!!!
