Hi all
After watching the pastel class I am tempted to add a bit more surf to this painting I did a few weeks ago but I don't want it to distract from the tree.  What do you think - does it need more or leave as is?
Thanks
Anita

Lovely painting Anita. . . . I wouldn't add any more surf, in my own personal opinion. I feel that this is a scene after the storm which has tossed this tree ashore and now the sea is resting. I like it a lot!! :clap: :clap:

That tree is so good, Anita.  I wouldn't add anything to compete with it.

Nice work.

Well done Anita!  I love the atmospheric sky at the horizon and how you tied the beach flotsam color to it, bravo! :clap:

I am in total agreement with Dennis. This is excellent. AND... you heard the master, don't touch! Especially if you don't want the  :knuppel2: after you!   ;D
