I think you did very well with it. Love the colours reflected in the water.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
I am going to do this in pastel, can't decide if I should have a go on Black paper, or black tinted sandpaper. Not for the challenge but will post in my thread in the pastel encourager section.

What this photo is actually actually about is a boat done up with Christmas lights that toured along the coastline and lagoon as Santa's 'floating' sleigh. He magically appeared after the fireworks finished up. I managed this photo as he passed by PJ anchored out in the harbour. It was a moonless, starless night ,so the pitch black aided in hiding the boat. Was great fun to hear how excited all the kids were.
Cheers, Val

Thanks for the explanation, Val. What a surprising and pleasing experience to see a boat with this pretty Christmas light!
Will watch out for your pastel drawing!
