This is cool! Colorful, vivid, great value range. Two big issues, though, for me. What are the gray shapes in the boat and you just can't put a bunch of green dots on the sand. Attack the sand with long swipes of the knife to get tonality. Like you did with the water.

Although I kind of like the green dot pattern for its contrast I do love that luscious use of paint in the water. Like TG says: Cool! Also, like TG I am curious as to what those rocks are in the boat? This is a wonderful painting it is just chock full of personality!!!

The boat, which is the center of interest, is a little too centered for me, with nothing of interest around it. I don't see any movement.

amazing and bold use of paint and color, i love that you're so brave!

at first look i was a little turned off by the bright yellow boat trim matching the bright yellow foreground, but the more i look at it the more i do like the high contrast of it and the blues. it's not reality - i can accept that and just enjoy the view

the headless dude in the front of the boat is adorable in his fur trimmed coat ; )

I really like the colors and thick paint application. Very nice job I think.

Thank you All for great comments and suggestions. This painting is not a pure reality, it’s something between reality and abstraction - or maybe not. About those objects inside of the boat – it was some strange fishing machines covered with a tarpaulin, but your interpretation La is very interesting :) I'm really really really happy that there are people who like my paintings.

gorgeous picture. I think that maybe you could put some darker shading on the bottom right corner to frame the picture better perhaps
