I am not very good at boats or buildings so this is good practise for me. I did it free hand so I am hoping the shape is alright . Left the oars out because we are stranded and the gull flew away. Oil on canvas 8 by 10.

This is great. I like the interesting textures the paint has and the birds that you added.

Great brushstrokes and very impressive

Beautiful - I think this is gorgeous - the abstractionis just perfect and you have really pushed the color.

I love your interpretation of this. Well done!

Hi, this is my favorite one!  Very impressionistic, yet convincing with the gulls flying away.  I like all the "extras" you added.  (I would have liked the upper right hand sky blended a little more for even more variety)  :)  Great work, I can't wait to get my brushes wet again.  Just finished painting 2 dog paintings.

Hi Donna,  I am new to this site but am drawn to impressionism and I love your interpretation of the Dinghy.  I like the way you allow the viewer to "fill in" the story you have told with your paint.  Great job!
