Ships on the sea

I worked on this pretty much all day today. The ocean and sky are just acrylic underpainting not what the ocean and sky will be when finished. The ships really were not hard to paint, but of course I didn't do too much detail on them. Please critique the ships and let me know if you see blatant problems. The white sails on the first ship may be too gray. What do you think? My intent is that the light is going left to right on the ships.

Is the front ship going to be going up over a wave Terry? It looks a bit tilted. Looks good thus far

I say WOW!!!

I have noticed so much improvement in your paintings, just in the few months I've been a member. Those ships are pretty incredible to me.

Yes the seas will be choppy and the tilt of both ships was intentional. I hope to make the waves so the tilts look logical. I also plan to have the sky cloudy in sort of a stormy way(but not actually storming) and have a break in the clouds showing sun rays coming through. It's beautiful in my mind....but lets see if I can get it out of there and onto the canvas.

Gal, yer working too hard in the mid ranges. That should have taken an hour or so. Now, don't git all defensive... If I can't say the truth I'll shaddap. In acrylics you normally start with the darks & work up. Yer doing everything in the dark to mids & working too hard. Still gotta add in the warms & work up into the highs. The lavenders, the greens, the yellows. Keep yer brush strokes to a minimum so textures don't cause probs.

Sorin what you are looking at is the underpanting as I said in my post. Please don't critique it as if it is a done piece. As for taking only a hour for what I have I just need to remind you all of us work at different levels. Perhaps when I have done this 50 years (as you have) I could do it faster....but then I will be 116 years old so maybe not.

I like how u did with the sky Terry and the ships are perfectly good for me. I have a question though, how come you didn't use the same bluish color for the water like you used with the other painting? The one with the rocks?

What you are looking at is the underpainting.....everyone thinks it's the painting, it will be much different once it's done. I don't think I'm going to post underpaintings any more, it causes too much confusion.

Well, phooey, @TerryCurley, you can speak all that oil painting stuff all day long and I still don't have a clue what you are saying.

I just like looking at the pretty pictures.
