....I gave up on this one. I photographed it to put on the computer and play around with other components etc.... Thought I'd add some vague distsant wreck in the background and stuffed it up completely :( I should have left well alone.... a lesson there :)

Hey, this is pretty cool. What an unusual subject to paint, particularly that the guy appears to appreciate the view :o It does look as though they are underwater. :clap: :clap:

Hi Mike - I think you're right to leave it to the swimmers and the water - they certainly look like swimmers underwater.
Would the shadows be softer tho?
And I think it would help with the foreshortening of his leg if the flipper 'thingy' was much bigger - it is a lot nearer the viewer than the rest of him!!!!!! Just MHO, of course - feel free to disregard!!!!!!! :D

Hi Mike,
This is very cool, nice job on portraying underwater swimmers. It would improve having lighter values at the top and darker values mid area but still a good piece regardless.

Thanks Carol, Maureen and Marty. Yes it was looking good for there a while :) I note all your comments and agree, but I dunno about you, but once I stuff something up and don't know how to fix it then I lose all motivation on the piece. I am discovering that a lot :) Part of the process I guess..... on to the next one.
