Re: early morning

Nethra this is lovely and you have most certainly captured the essence of morning as opposed to evening...very cool.

Re: early morning

Stunning! I think the composition is well done. The beached boats have a lot of charachter and I love your use of colour, where the sun glints off of the. I like the shimmering on the water, and the colours in the sky as well.
Just the smallest critique-the water horizon does not appear to be entirely flat and horizontal, which I think it should be-but that might just be my eye.
Still, beautiful work.

Re: early morning

The light is fantastic- I can FEEL the sun! Fantastic attention to detail. The time of day you have painted is very difficult to capture proper lighting and you have done it with flair!

Re: early morning

good work, evocative!
at the edge of the sandy area you've put a darker line, that line color is the same as the edge of the second boat, that creates some confusion an that area, easy to be fixed I think.

Re: early morning

The lighting and the color combinations are well done. The painting has a serene feel. Only distraction are the dark lines - on the horizon, on the sand, on top of the boats, my eyes don't know where to focus. Beautiful work.
