Hi Judy this is great work. Love the sky and the boat.
My only crit is that i would extend lightly a little more of the yellow beyond the sunset line in the water. Do you know what I mean? At the moment the sun reflection is a little too hard. Perhaps it is only showing this way on my computer.

Yes yes modifying the sun and reflection makes it much better. You could scratch out a few high lites on the rigging, right now everything over there looks like it's in total darkness. Nice one.

Hi JJ,
Nice atmosphere, you have done well with the sunset. With the additional refinements this is a fine piece.

i wouldn't touch it myself.

I think it's fabulous, and has a texture to it that gives it real feeling....
it strikes me as quite design orientated, like a textile...
gorgeous!

Being on the prairie, we don't see too many boats. :) So, please forgive a naive question. What is the circular object on the front (or back?) of the boat? Anyway, the colors you've used for the sunset and the reflections in the water have a realistic effect. Nice watercolor.
