Compass rose

I saw this little boat hauled up I for repairs in Lympstone near Exmouth as the sun was setting. Oil on board 10” x 14” c&c welcome

Re: Compass rose

That is a really beautiful painting, I like the brilliant color and sharp contrasts of edges and values.

The only aspect that strikes me as a bit odd is the bright white in the water below the shadow of the boat, which competes with the visual interests of the boat silhouetted against the light above the water.

Re: Compass rose

Lovely, lively colors. Nice composition. In my opinion the big cement wall on middle right detracts from the rest of painting. I like the shadows from the boat and the bright reflections in the water.

Re: Compass rose

That's just nice. You did a superb job of capturing both the sunlight and the water.

Re: Compass rose

When I look at that painting I keep wanting to squint to keep the sun reflecting off the water from hurting my eyes. Amazing how you handled the sun reflecting off the bay ahead of the boat, and the reflection behind the boat in the still water. Wonderful work!

Re: Compass rose

I always like when someone creates a bit watercolorish look in an oil painting. Not too much, so as not to compete with another media, but just the right amount - like here.

Re: Compass rose

very good,
a tip for water reflections, in general, when objects are reflected in water, light objects produce a darker reflection, but dark objects reflect a lighter reflection than the real thing.
