really like the color tones but all the action is fairly centered.

There does not seem to be enough information here for me. It could be Blue Skies as you say...or in my mind it is the start of a sensational wave breaking on the beach. In my opinion it seems that we equate small size (6X8) with things of lesser importance. This could be worked up into a real gem, a sparkling small jewel, a treasure in an outrageously Rococo frame!

This would be so strong if you slapped on a few messy layers of gesso on the canvas as prep.
I can't get past shreddies.....:o
aside from that.......your palette is developing nicely.

What in the world are shreddies?

Corvus - my first mistake was in picking up these canvases that are 6x8 - I have some great frames in the 5x7" format and an ornate gold frame is what I intended. (How did you know!?)
Glenn - I wanted the lightest area to be counterbalanced by the red... a few more glazes are in order.... in fact it may be a wave. ;-)

oops, sorry I should explain.
The little squares from the canvas. They look like shredded wheat when they are not worked out..

I immediately see an alligator arising from the surf. After seeing it, I have to focus out to make a landscape out of it. I don't think I would change a thing for fear of losing this. I think it is a great stroke of luck, or inner genious at this point.
