I really like the greys in your colour palette and your lights on the buildings and the rocks.

Hi Micheal. I tried to use the exact colors that Richard used in his palette. Exceptions, I don't have Cobalt violet and my Cad. yellow light is Cad yellow Light Pure from Utrecht. The very brightest part of the sail is almost straight out of that tube. Shadow side is yellow ochre, cad yellow, ultramarine blue for the cools. add cad orange for warm shadows. the sun lite building (If I remember right) is a touch of ultimate blue. to gray down the yellow ochre and lots of white. I hope this helps.

Hi Chuck.  May I ask what yellow u used for the sail .. and did you use the same yellow for the sunlit areas of the buildings?

I wouldn't say the sail is garish! And dull isn't the right word either (even though that's what I said). Maybe your colours are greener than Sargent's, so the sail isn't as 'golden', and the bright light on your walls is a cooler bright. Your painting has its own mood, consistent throughout, and it works for me. I like it.

Thanks everyone. Gail, I did struggle with some of the colors feeling dull so I tried to pop (push chroma) the sail as the center of interest and I agree maybe a little garish.When I took this photo most of the thinner darks were dry (dull) and any color with white in it or thick paint was still wet (glossy) after it dries I will varnish the painting, that should darken the darks and hopefully fix the dull impression.

Hi Chuck. I like how your version creates a little more room in the sky area. With that, you've been able to add more detail to the top of the sail. It helps me make sense of the folds of the sail. Nice brushwork too. At first I thought your colours were dull, and your sail too chartreuse, but they've grown on me lol.
