Hi everyone

This is the second acrylic painting that I gave painted having recently made a transition from Watercolour.

I'd appreciate any thoughts, comments, feedback.

The painting is Acrylic on MDF (masonite for Americans) approximately 300x400 mm using Pebeo Artists Acrylic paints.

Hi Literal from another Wellingtonian...area anyway!!
You've captured the estuary grasses, and the mood of this place. the clouds are very realistic...!!:clap: :clap: :clap:
IMO I find my eye wanting to focus on something, but everything is out of focus, if you see what I mean,...I don't know, maybe a blade of grass or two detailed????
Just my opinion...depends what effect you were after anyway...your painting..:)

Thanks for the positive feedback. The digital camera I own is a cheapie and tends to make things appear a little out-of-focus but you are right... something vertical to hold the eye wouldn't go astray.

I'll give it some thought.

this is a very good composition, the out of focus photo doesnt help but overall a very good painting, great water - mike
