Awesome painting Vicki. You captured the sea foam pattern perfectly and your wave action has a lot of energy. The lighting is great, as well as the sparkles! I'm enjoying looking at this fantastic piece!

Re: Point Avoid Breaker

This is stunning! When I opened the thread (here at work, where I shouldn't be looking at this), I say "Wow!" out loud! The depth and clarity of the colors are striking, and the sparkles on the distant water are just right! Really good work here!!!

Wow! Feel like I could be swimming in that water right now....of course it's raining outside right now so that would be a welcome thing to do.
Well done Vicki!

Re: Point Avoid Breaker

Thanks Greg, Dale, Brian, Marty, Mary, Lea, D'Arcy, Alex, Randall and Ron. It's always great to get your feedback

If you ever visit this part of the world you might want to only get your toes wet, it's aptly named for it's turbulent waters and Great White Sharks

Cheers,
Vicki
