Excellent work!!!  Apart from other good elements, I was  attracted by the detail description of the waves and rocks very much. I love the overall color combination of this painting. Beautiful!!

Thanks again everyone for the comments.

Silvana I had two blues  Phthalo and F. Ultramarine. I am  trying to use the limited palette but its  hard to leave out  old favourites. Teaching an old dog new tricks!! not easy. I also had out  burnt sienna. i am accustomed to using a mix of these as my black. Didnt know I was making a chromatic black until  I saw it called  that  on Richards video.

I have removed all greens and burnt umber  and dont miss them at all so a little progress is being made

Olivia, great work. The water looks masterful to me! The shoreline is a bit curvy and falls to the right. It might look more balanced when straightened up a bit.
