I would appreciate comments of this painting done in acrylics. It measures 12x18 inches.
Thanks. There is about 4" missing on the right. http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=259042&a=1928336&p=17101931&Sequence=0

You are doing great! I love the subject matter of this as well as the other two you posted! Just love it! You have done a really great job capturing the stormy feeling and the movement of the waves. Keep it up!

Now this one I really like, it appealed to me as soon as I saw it, the only thing I thought stood out a bit much was that the ship is a bit white. Apart from that, its a really dramatic piece!

Really nice; wonderful contrast between the sea and sky and very interesting color variation wothin each. Great work.

It's really nice. I'd agree with Sandi that the ship could be a bit stronger--even though in reality it probably would be dimmed by rain, mist, fog. But for the sake of the painting, I think it should stand out more. Phyl

Dramatic and moving.....I like it a lot and agree the boat should stand out more but not a lot. When I squint my eyes, the white caps catch my attention first..just a thought.
