Faisal, good for you for working from other painters. That's how the masters learned too.
Hard for me to say too much without seeing the original by Macpherson, but I like the way this has turned out. Nice use of colour, nothing gets too dark or heavy in this painting. Great shadows on the boats. Did you try copying his brushstrokes as well as colour and composition?
