Thank you...I am trying to remember if I did underpainting on this - I often do and I know it always helps!

Me too ! This is a beautiful place you have imagined, so alive and serene... the quiet before the storm with it's wonderful light. A beautiful vision.

That's a blow! I just tried and it worked for me. I am a bit of a Ludite when it comes to working these things out - I hope it works out for you soon:)

Wow, I really like this! The scene is so well crafted that it really draws you in; there's a lot of depth and storytelling going on that makes it a very interesting piece. I think the seagulls add a nice touch of character, and I like how everything's going all purple because of the weather. And I love the idea of a upside-down boat house! How fun. Great job!

I'm glad you like the painting:) I did do a bit of homework trying to get the details and composition just right, so I appreciate your observations, thanks!

Lovely uses of purple, as always. The touches of green in the direct light make great color harmony. :heart:


The little seagull's reflections are cute.

:faint:...your use of colour just blows me away. :D Absolutely gorgeous; my favorite part is how the brilliant white of the seagulls gives the painting focus and line. Wonderful work!
