Hello all,
I decided to work on another sunset over some rough waters. All comments and critiquing appreciated.

I love the golden sky. Personally I would add just something, a seagull or a ship in the distance (right in the sweet spot) to capture the viewers eye and bring them into the painting. All it would need to be is a couple of blobs of paint, no detail, and small. It's just a suggestion.

Hi Terry,
Thank you for stopping by and commenting and making suggestions on my painting. I added up flock of birds and worked on the water and sky adding some color and depth.
Thanks

The sky and birds are very nicely done, the water in front where the waves break could use more depth, sneak some dark in there a little at a time, you will start to see improvement.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for taking the time and offering suggestions and encouragement, much needed. I'll work on those waves.
Thanks again

Hi Susan
So I went back over the waves and added some darker colors in between not sure if I got the effect correct?
