I really appreciate any comments that I can learn from. It is so great to have a group of talented painters giving input! Thanks so much.Sandra
Wow Sandra, very powerful painting here and lots of drama. Most of the fine detail was not really necessary, however, a great job here! Brian
Just a really beautiful painting!!! Sandra. Love the boat love the water. It might have been nicer if you had left the trees out, but then its just a thought. Listen to Brian, he will put you on to the right track,and on top of that he notices everything.One smart cookie he is!.
Thanks guys, I don't seem to see how to make the picture look like what it is without the detail! I intend to keep working on it and then take the refresher course in a couple of months. It's so helpful to watch you paint Brian and to see how you use your brush strokes so sparingly! Thanks for the comments.Sandra
Wow Sandra this is a beauty!!!The trees tend to be a bit distracting though. Good going.Jeffrey
Amazing Sandra! (If you are going to do any tree removal, you could start with just the four at the front and see if that makes a difference.) Linny
And, your water is fantastic!Linny
