Hi Karlo, these are wonderful, but I
Like the clouts fand the rugged quality of the bottom right.

Thank you, Karlo, on PC instructions. I am copying them & will try. I have a MAC computer & am still figuring it out. Maybe the palette knife is not as precise BUT adds drama. My paintings look SO calm; maybe I should add some palette knife.

I understand, Karlo. Experiences come from practice. A law for painters. I will try to paint more and less time under the condition of quality. It is very kind of you.

Maybe 2 hours .. but in between many hours of thinking and dont worry.. This is actually "my" favorite subject and most of my paintings are about waves... There are days when It goes so slowly... and some (rare) when it goes better..

Thanks  for your info, Karlo. Only not more than 1 hour for one!!!! You knows. I think that I have to hide myself in a corner and cry.....

Thanks Ladies !

This are small color studies (5" x 7") made with palette knife, and i think not more then 1 hour for one..(when you work with palette knife tends to go faster - but on the other hand they are not so precize and finished - as I would like..) The one on the right upper side I used also brush - and you can see that in better rendering of the wave..and soft transitions..

Otherwise Walda it is not difficult to present them together. I use PhotoShop (i got some older version free..), and just open the paintings (photos) which I like to put on one page, then open "new" empty page (bigger), and copy - paste each photo on this New one..(I use commands on keyboard: "ctrl c" for copy, and "ctrl v" for paste, and then "ctrl t" for moving it around and put it in right posittion.. It is actually very useful and funny to learn and play with this...

Karlo, what a GREAT layout of paintings!! I must learn how to present them this way. i tend to like the first one or the last one. Great work.

Karlo, you are really a scholar, a creative and true complete artist.I noticed that every one has its own composition and all very well done and beautiful. Wonderful job! How big size each of them? How long time you painted for each one? As I painted my only one by using 10 hours, I am very curious.
