The brushstrokes you have used in the water creates nice highlights and motion. The boats and their reflections also look nice. The way you have sectioned the colors of the sky kind of looks like you added the background in after painting the water and the boats, which I think is an unusual technique.

    Thank you, Envision for your review. I forget which order I painted what except I think I did the main sailboat first.
Comment from Life is but a dream.


Hey, I just saw that you are the number two on the site for traditional artists...HOORAY.

You have done a good job on this 2015 painting, a more recent one I see.

Red and blue primary colours are nicely used the sun behind an orange cloud and just a nice warm day sailing.

Look beside the sailing boat, the large one, can you see what you have done? you have a line of paint going up and that is totally incongruous with all the other strokes.

The other strokes I like with a touch of white....whitecaps perhaps, a nice breezy day.

I like the warmth this piece generates.

This is a very beautiful painting! I like the way you painted the water and the reflections of the sailboats. The sunset colors in the sky are lovely.

Comment from Neilnap773


quirky little piece but for me too messy in its composition and the brush strokes on the water are not right and i perceive that the yacht was painted first with the ocean painted around the yacht . Its lacking finesse for me . I do however like your palette particularly the sunset

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Impressive compositional style.

Contrasting colors.
Informal carefree strokes...

THe sun will eventually creep into the bosom of darkness.
Twilight's last gleaming.
Diminishing perspective.
Vanishing viewpoint.

An impressive artwork rendition. Colorful creation with excellent strokes & textures. Good compositional style. Great overall impact!
Please straighten up horizon.
Thanks for sharing...

    Thank you, Dick for your review. Thought I had waves that are causing swelling in parts of the horizon.

    Got you, Dick. Thank you for the feedback. I have seen crooked horizons due to structures. I know it is possible to have waves make a horizon look curved. But, I think the seas would have to be choppier than mine. Thank you
Comment from seshadri_sreenivasan


The colours are eye-catching. But unfortunately you seem to have got the reflections and the movement of the water wrong! You may have to work on this more to fix them. Sorry to deduct some points!

    No problem, sesha. Mind telling me how you know the reflections are wrong? I mean why couldn?t they be right? I am trying to understand this. Thank you
