Good work, Barbara. Again, I would say the whole painting is wonderful--but, I really like that water!

Excellent work Barbara...well done. :)

Barbara this turned out beautifully :clap:

Your background suits it too, well done.

Been watching your progress, and I am impressed! This painting has turned out terrific. Everything in it works—the beautiful blue trees, the green-blue waters, the breeching whale with the water cascading off. This one definitely deserves a lovely mat and frame and pride of place on somebody's wall! :p

This is very creative Barbara! I really like the background trees and the ship and the whale..he is a huge one by the way!! Love the action of him jumping out of the water! :)

It would be boring if they ALL turned out this good. You need a little rain to make the sunny days stand out. ;)

the orca is amazing!
But the boat is trying to compete for attention, with all that white. Perhaps glaze it with the same brown tone lightly applied. Or even with a bit of the water's blue with a touch of orange to dull it, push it into the background a little more.
The orca deserved to be center stage!:clap:

Wow Barbara, this came out great! You really captured the motion and the effect of the water running off the orca is terrific :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like Visionary's suggestion about a very light glaze over the boat, it could make the orca even more dramatic -- maybe try it out in your paint program first just to see? Whether you decide to glaze it or leave it, you deserve a nip of BB for this one... :::taps foot and waits on the mail delivery from Ireland:::
