Did one similar to this last year and it just sold. The person that bought it wants to another similar to give as a gift to a client. So this is what I came up with.

Anything?

Peaceful. The water is soft and gentle not violent.
I like the warm colors peeking through the waves. :)

Lovely! I miss scenes like this from Vancouver (where I lived before I moved here to Colorado).

A peaceful, gorgeous painting.

Cheers eh,
Nicole

Blues and browns interrupted by white ...superb and serene at the same time.

AY,..well done. Your style is so recognizable to me Sue :)
Perhaps a bit more detail (ie: delicate strokes of deeper, richer blue),..........and sparkle within the depths of the water might hold my interest a tad longer. I always love your soft,painterly approach.............and this one is no exception!

Left as-is,..or worked a bit further,..I'm quite sure that the client will be quite
happy and delighted with this gift! Cheers,-S

I like how the white is enclosed but still connects to the edges.

Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated. :) Thank you.
Didn't forget to respond...just busy. We had somewhere around 11 to 13 inches of rain yesterday and the whole area is declared a disaster area. Five dams broke and several bridges washed out and many homes were flooded and many roads are impassable, including some major highways. Thankfully I live on high ground. Just had a gutter fill and back leak into my garage.
