Hi Gordon..check your file name, you do not need the whole path..just the ;;;name.jpg;; inserted in the html you already have in your post..click on edit in you post, delete the long name/filepath you have in there now and put in the name i.e. "wave.jpg" (whatever you have the name saved as)be sure it is saved in the jpg format, and include the .jpg in your edit..

The format should be:

/Critiques/User/filename.xxx

This is what should be in between the IMG tags.

Cheers.

Nice painting Gordon - your lighting in the sky is really appealing !

I agree with Sandi. The thing with the sea is it is always moving, dynamic and powerful. If you can convey that with some high spray up against the rocks on the right-hand-side it will convey that motion nicely.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Critiques/User/sk.jpg I don’t now if you are using a photo and trying to be faithfully with what you are seeing. I hope I will not make the fool.

Try to think waves are half tubes and make the strokes follow the shape. Your waves look more like a ramp.
Vary the wideness of the top foam. Give more white pattern in the plain water in front of the wave. You are using the same rendering in the wave and in the plain water and that is “killing” the wave.
Hope I could help you.

You have a nice light in the sky, but you are making three boring horizontal areas. Improve the blues on the top and try to vary the shapes.

This is only my opinion… Hope I could help you.I’m a beginner too
