Had another go at this - much faster / looser.

What do you think?

I like the looseness of the water here. The red of the boat seems very isolated with only these blues and greens around it. I would look for ways to repeat it in other areas of the painting.

Hi Peter, I love it. Very loose and colorful.

Thanks Anita, Lisa, JJ !

Yes, I could have added a bit more red - would have helped the balance.

Having spent quite a bit of time on the first version, I wanted to try this again - quick and loose, and without making a sketch. The paint went straight on!

As often the case, I think both versions have their good points. I always find it interesting repeating a subject - like Forest Gump, you never know what yer gonna get! :D
