Your use of colors is exceptional and make for a calm and peaceful scene. I like the magenta used in the sky and also in the water. So beautiful are the reflections and movement created in the water. Your details and textures along with brush strokes and shading are incredible. This is a talented and creative art work and thanks for sharing! Worthy of a six star!

So lovely are the brush stroked beauty of these sails, their texture and warmth of the sun and shadows they capture almost magical as they reflect shimmering washes of tones across that striking water's surface of blues and lit accents. I love the atmosphere of the stilled birds in flight as well as the character of the houses in the distance, setting the scene, reflecting their own palette of character on the canvas. Gorgeous acrylic rendering.

A well thought out rendition of this Irish traditional boat with modified sail style as if the small piece is for "fine tuning" when soft breeze blows...

Striking reddish colors with reflections against an overcast sky--seemingly an imminent weather disturbance is brewing somewhere...

An impressive artwork rendition. Colorful creation with excellent strokes of features & textures. Good compositional style. Great overall impact!

Thanks for sharing...

Such a lovely and peaceful scene here catmal.

Your paintings are just amazingly realistic....I think it's all the little details you include. With this piece, for example, you've added the little birds flying over up and over the ships as well as the reflections of that marvelous color you've given the sails....so much more interesting than white. Do they actually use sails this color?? I think I would like it a lot. Regardless of whether or not they do this peachy-coral color is so eye catching. I also like that one of the row houses is blue....another wonderful shot of soft color.

It is definitely a lovely piece catmal....w/ your style written all over it. You do wonderful work.

Deborah

Wonderful image. There is such grand power in the color and lighting - amazing brush strokes! Wonderful "shine" here and there. Great detail over the scene as well. Beautifully done. Thanks for sharing!
