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.

those roaring waves! wonderfully done!

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.
