I miss the beached boats they added a sense of distance to the shoreline.
I do love the overcast light and subdued colors

It definitely makes you focus on the Dorys more. I don't miss the boats on the shore at all.

I really like how you are handling the three of them. Everything looks so much brighter and the smaller ones do not compete with the bigger one at all.

Great job.

Judy

Just one comment re missing boat on the shore. I think you need something to break that line across the top made by the edge of grass.
Otherwise - great

I agree on breaking up the grassline. I think I may build up some rocky area where the original pier may have been.

And a small little boat on the shore may give back the bit of perspective

I like the changes you've made with eliminating the boats on the shore. I'm not sure why but they seemed not to fit with the rest of the painting. Smile

OK. I would still like to include a gull somewhere. And I am determined to start painting brighter pictures. Mine are way too dark!

Looking for final input in this one

Thanks Jack. Glad to have it completed. I will leave the birds for another painting.

I will be completely gull-less on this one.

Dale,

It looks great. The detail in the background is just enough and the dorys are terrific. Nice job.

Ok. I thought I was done but a local artist suggested that I may consider putting some land fog in the background. I find the background very dull and that might do it.

Land fog, living in England, as I do, means you can't see anything. Careful. I would tend to disagree.
good job

Land fog... interesting idea! I'm sure you can pull it off beautifully. Smile

I just might add a few horizontal streaks for interest sake.

I like both the latest and the previous versions. Hung side-by-side in a gallery and I'm not sure which one I would end up with. Did you change the colors between the versions or is that due to the lighting when taking the photo? Either way, the colors I see are perfect for each of them. Very nice work!

Thanks Jim. I am happier with this one now. And the difference in colours is due to the lighting

Interesting how the focus is totally on the dorys now. I'm with Jim, though, I like both versions and am not sure which I prefer. Either way, it...they are great paintings.
