I have a sunrise that I have painted this sunrise and I was wondering about the left side of painting whether that has been done correctly. Should I also lighted the boulders some more.
16 X 20 on wrapped canvas
I'm not sure what to call this. Any ideas would be a big help. C & C are most welcome.
Thanks for looking.:clap:

I love the top 2/3 but would love to see you develop the bottom 1/3 a bit. I think some stronger contrast there would be lovely and would help push the background into the distance.

Great work, I agree with Gayle, I think the rock in the foreground need to be a bit more detailed. Might I suggest the lower part of the far land be a bit darker as it gets closer to the water it would be in the shade if its sun rising.. the reflection of the blue sky would be go all the way up to the rocks i nthe foreground , its a mirror image of the sky.

This I realize how much this really helped to push back the bg. Thank you.

Thank you for your comments. I can certainly see the difference this makes.

Here is the foreground rocks. Does it need more detail?

Good job on taking Gayle's advice and darkening the foreground, much better. Don't know if more detail on the rocks are needed, I think you might be asking for a POI in the artwork ( Point of Interest ) Since the title is sunrise you may want to work on that aspect of the sun light and how it affects the rest of the painting imho.
