Another good piece Brian. Love the reflections in the water. I'm not as crazy about the buildings. They blend in too much with the boats.

Beautiful loose painting. I wonder if the background would flow better without the sharp, high contrast, vertical edge directly above the main boat?:cool:

Another fine one Brian. I too give a big :thumbsup: to the boats and reflections but am not so taken by the buildings in the background.
My first thought was that the background would benefit from more value contrast, more definition but then my second thought was to soften the values and edges so it doesn't compete with the foreground :confused:

The Ferry just jumps out of my screen. I like how the rest of the painting just sits abstractly in the background. Very much a 3D effect.

Great painting!
