I love deeply saturated colors and LeighAnn knows that so that's why she put it up there for me to see. However I do think this picture should have more blending of the colors.

I see the focal point of that painting being the sun. It is the first thing the eye catches and invites you to come into the picture and look around. It is located in a 'sweet' spot. The main subject of the painting is the boat, and the beauty of the painting is the colors.

Hey this is fun, critiquing work that is from no-one we know so none of us has a stake in the game.

Dang it! I still haven't found the right image to paint. I know what I want, I just haven't found it yet. I will probably run out of time but that's OK. I really want to do this right.

I noticed your boat is in black and white. Is that because of the photo as well?

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

The outside body of the boat is black in its darkest areas but there is actually some dark browns, and dark, dark green in the net hanging off the back.

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

I have a soft ball game to go to tonight so I'm done for today.
Nice drawing. I never do that, I just start painting. I may have to change that.

I do things different depending on the painting. Most Landscapes or flowers I will just start painting, but if there is a complicated part (like an animal, person, or building up close) in the picture I will draw it in first. Far away subjects I don't bother doing that.

Anyway I changed my plans on the picture, I decided not to do the dock because it would be too difficult for me to draw the boats and buildings and I do think it would be a better picture without it. So here is what I did today. I'm done with painting for today...just need to clean my brushes.

Funny wasn't it just the other day I said I don't do WIP anymore. Oh well it's a woman's prerogative to change.

I started mine. I'm going to try to get it done by Sunday but I might not make it. This is going to be cool!
