Hi mooz,

beautiful scene. I like the way you show the little ripples in the water as it aproaches the shore. I also like the deep red-purple stripe on the horizon, that is very well observed.

The orange haze on top of the blue sky in the upper third of the painting looks dirty. Isn't an evening sky typically orange and hazy towards the horizon, but very clear and blue towards the zenit?

When you are on a good thing, keep at it until it no longer works for you.

This one works for me too.

I agree - I like this orientation very much too -- it really plays up the color of the water reflection beautifully.

It's so peaceful - Great work!

This painting has a great feel to it - like the real thing.

Mooz, I do the same thing, different scene for me but still I tend to do the same basic scene with variations.. I think it's very relaxing to be able to paint without a whole lot of preperation involved. not challenging but definately relaxing, when your ready you'll move on but you'll always be able to pull this scene out of your bag for a quickie

I like your boat scenes!

04-10-2007, 08:44 PM
Love the colour and the mood you've captured.

one slight niggle - either the perspective's wrong or the boat should be listing to the right as viewed from the front. If there was a little more hull showing on that side it would read better.

Gail .... thank you ....:wave:

Molly ....:wave: ..... thank you also .... I really don't have any tips about blending as I always had trouble with acrylics myself but I have been using Liquitex Professional Heavy Body Acrylic paint just recently and I think it seems to bland better for me .....
