MY COMMENTS:
This is for my other sister and brother-in-law who sail. The boat is just the underpainting showing through. My intention is to paint it a dark grey blue, to suit the time of day, and to compliment with the largely orange sky. I am also intending on laying a thin blue glaze over the water to darken the reflections, and make the water more refective-also to see if this will work as I think it might-havenít really glazed before.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
c & C?

The underpainting looks great. Once you've defined the horizon and glazed the water ............ I'll be back.
Nice work going on here !

Jon,

It's a convincing ship and I like that, plenty of confidence showing. Good luck wwwith the glazing. I don't do much of it myself.

I see you've been working hard recently, Jon! Me too, but I'm not brave enough to post the results. Anyway, I agree with Caroline (I generally do) that this is a great painting in all sorts of respects, including stylistic coherence: congrats! - Guy

Thanks its not quite done yet, though. Should be in a day or two.

Chelista, try not to be afraid to post. When I look back at my earlier stuff I cringe, but I have learned so much from posting-and as you can see, the folks here are pretty friendly.

this is very stunning ..
IMO, the blue is too intense for the rest of the piece. I can't crop it because I'm at work but if you crop it to the red in the center of the painting and the sky you can see what a difference it makes. That would leave some blue showing through and enough blue to enhance all the yellow gold. You wouldn't have to crop the piece, just carry the yellows, etc. upward and outward.

The boat shows really well as is and I would think if you added a few darks to the surrounding water you would have no need to touch the boat at all other than to add a few shadow colors of equal value.

Just thoughts to entertain.

Later,

Done-I hope. Admittedly not the most original subject.
