Looking good. I like the way you handled the water.

Hi Michael,

Love the way you simplified your shapes in both sketches. Great shadow colors in the first one. You captured a sense of warmth/heat as well.
I agree with Chris, you handled the water like a pro!

Chris, Thanks. I remember scraping the water back a few times to try and really nail the feel of it.

Thanks Jennifer :P
I'm not that used to painting light that late in the day so the first one was a learning exp!

Hi Michael!
Isn't it great what happens with the colors at this daytime? I think you did an excellent job!
What size are the paintings?

I like the composition of hte first one, really interesting. Great color.

Danke Michael, It is very interesting painting in the early morning and later in the day.. The colour relationships are much more obvious then. Diese Bilder sind sehr kleine.. nur 5"x 7"! Sie haben auch eine nett Webseite!

I commented on some of these on WC, but I just gotta say, I LOVE that tug boat!
