First painting posted to the Gallery

Hi everyone,
I've followed Wet Canvas forums for some time and enjoyed seeing what others have done and are doing. I guess it's time to show you one of mine - here goes....
This is a painting of friends after a days sailing on the Gippsland lakes in Victoria, Australia. I entered the painting in a local art show and was delighted that someone bought it as a gift for a friend of theirs.
The image is disappointing as the original is more vibrant. I'm learning about photographing art works and hopefully will improve. I started painting two years ago and I welcome comments and advice about improving my paintings.
Regards
Mal

Re: First painting posted to the Gallery

Wow Mal, welcome to show more of your art! This is unbelievable, considering you have painted two years only (so am I... so I know what I am talking about!)

A fine work. The water is simply masterful. Thanks for sharing, and keep them sailing to the forum...

Wonderful work Mal welcome to the forum. Your picture looks very dark on my screen. Is this better?



Terrific reflections.

If you can work the uploader icon it would be better, attached pictures have a habit of disappearing of late.

Hallo Mal, hervorragend!
Die Spiegelungen des Bootes sind super.

Re: First painting posted to the Gallery

Thank you to each one who commented on my painting. It is a great encouragement to me.
Yorky, I tried the uploader but apparently I do not have cookies turned on - tried to change the computer's settings but no joy - hence the attachment. Another thing to learn ......

The usual problem with the uploader is a popup killer. The uploader is a Java routine, so your Java must be up to date too.

Re: First painting posted to the Gallery

Welcome to WC and Doug beat me to it.....shoulda known, but I framed it....;-)
Sure would love to have some of the boat scenes you have down there. Lots of water around Ottawa, but the boats are all small.

Mal, I like the energy in this painting . . . the light bouncing around on the boat and the water. Very fresh! I can see why someone bought it
