Hi Michael,
Haven't seen your stuff in a while (I'm not on wetcanvas much anymore). Great to catch up on your paintings. Great work!

the drawing perspective strokes in the water are great! And what you left out gives so much more depth than putting more detail in...

Love that water.

That sketch is better than most paintings I've seen around.

Great painting! It reminds me very much of Bocklin's Island of the Dead in terms of composition. ou captured the choppy waters beautifully and the light on the clouds is stunning. Love it!
