the owner had it framed and then asked me to add the tyre to the rope . The tyre is a well know item in this area and everyone was asking them where is the tyre in the painting  :2funny: now it is complete they say .

That is so true Bert, sometimes it is those little missing 'things' that really make the picture. I know when I did Byron's shack I was told by a few of the neighbouring fishermen that 'Is no Byron's house man.... where de toilet seat?' It was the old toilet seat hung on the mangrove that everyone knew!  :2funny:
Well done, beautiful picture... now that it's complete!  :whistle:      ;)       :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

BTW when you take a photo of the sea, or a large expanse of water, make sure the horizon is parallel  in the viewfinder  O0

This is general advice.
