I wanted to try something different.  I used a photo from morguefile for the subject.  Your comments for improvement appreciated!  Thanks..

This is quite nice, Mary Lou.  Love the blue hue on the boat.  Nice sky.  And you have that nice "looking-in effect" inside the boat.

This is beautiful! I almost think the blue needs to be a bit darker since the sun is behind it...

Lovely piece Mary Lou. I agree a bit of shading is warranted on the blue of the hull. Very nicely done.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Jay,

 I have revised the painting...Straightened the horizon,  I hope...dulled down the blue with shadowing and added a glaze to the sand.  I think it looks a bit better.

Wow, Mary Lou, you have turned good into GREAT.

Everything looks so much better now.  As pretty as the blue was originally, I can see now that it was blinding us from seeing the picture as a whole.

Now everything fits together perfectly.
