This is the first of three paintings done at a workshop with Rob Candy, an Aussie Water Colourist. He gave is the back ground and had us creating our own scene. We had a 6 hour workshop do do three paintings, forcing us to be loose. My second one was a disaster but good learning. The third one I shall post in the next couple of days.

I like this one, Bill.

Great water, reflections, shadows.  Has an air of mystery.

Wow, this one is so good! The water especially has come out very well. you could present this to the monochrome challenge, isn’t it, Bill?

Thank you Gita, not sure what you mean by, "you could present this to the monochrome challenge, isn’t it, Bill?"

Sorry Bill, I meant to say that this painting with the four boats in monochrome colours and the odd boat ina different colour actually fulfills the monochrome challenge rules. You could have submitted this painting, too. But I see that you´ve already submitted another nice painting with the camel and pyramids.
