Hi, Just wanted some reactions to this painting I am working on. Any suggestions are fine. I have already corrected some of the most noticable ones. :rolleyes: :confused: Sally

The highlight of the reflected sun on the water should be in the same direction as the shadows. The shadows are a little bit off and should be angled more towards the left. Also remember in a shadow the darkest part of the shadow is right next to the thing that makes the shadow.

Interesting but I am not sure what it is.......:confused:

Sally, I'm sorry, but as I'm not at all familiar with the subject, I can't really comment on what you're trying to do ...... I do like the top right sky ......but, are the towers see-through?, are they models?, is that water or sand?, are the pale turquoise shapes below part of the painting or the base it's resting on?
