Hi all, I have not been around for a few months.  Lost my enthusiasm for a bit, but now I am back and excited to paint again.  This challenge was just that for me, a challenge.  I have a cauliflower sky and messed up on the sailboat but it felt good to get back into painting again.

 :detective: Ok.... I know I'm blind in one eye and can't see out the other.... if there are caulies here, I can't find them! And I'm really looking! 
Nothing wrong with your sky, and definitely nothing wrong with the boat.   :boat:   Even the water looks good! Excellent job. Would you care to challenge my opinion?  :knuppel2:       :2funny:

Hi njnjgirl,
good painitng, gives me feeling of lightness O0 Is that watercolor?

And nicely composed, with three points - three boats - painted on light sky and water. Nothing wrong with the water, the big boat sits nicely in the waves O0 Great colors and lightness of the brush  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like your painting very much :gl:

Thank you Val, glad you don't see the caulis but they are there, I just tried to disguise them as streaks and clouds and glad it worked.  (They are on the top left near the mast..actually on either side of it).  I do appreciate your kind words and makes me happy that you like this. 

Thank you Patricia, nice to be back and glad to get my enthusiasm back. 

Thank you Pav, yes, this is watercolor, I should have noted that and it is done on 140lb arches paper.   :thankyou:

I don't see the problems, it looks lovely to me. The sea has a chop too it that makes the filled sail seem more lively.
Good Job!
