11x14 oil on panel..i think this needs something in the sky to help balance the land mass on the right..perhaps, a patch of blue? i added some turtles for fun...

thanks stu - i was thinking about a lighter patch of blue on the left..i chose this photo because of the strong sky but i think it can be tweaked.  guess what!?..i'm heading to the golf course today for the first time in a long while - maybe i can head to the studio for a while first!! thanks for the advice!  and thanks dorothy and jess for the kind words...

Susie - I loved your painting and the strong light and bold colours, Glad your husband is back on deck and you can get back to painting

Susie, nice painting. IMO the sky is dark enough already. I would darken the deeper water and lighten the sky on the horizon if I did anything, but I think your balance is ok. I can't see your turtles very well; they look like the rocks (but I guess most turtles do look like rocks anyway, but without chiseled out sides). Stu

caroline - thanks - in my reference photo..the sky and sea were so different but we know better - you just have to put it in there even if you don't see it because it all needs to relate! back to the drawing (painting) board...

i really love the free and easy style of this painting  i believe it is my favorite so far  maybe more land color reflected on the sky? particularly in the far left? just a touch though...but it relly seems quite perfect :)
