I've had this photograph for a while - boats at Queenscliff, a little coastal Village about an hour and a half from Melbourne . Oil on canvas 12 x 16 in. I'm not too happy with the angles of the boat on the right, found it rather difficult to read right but I liked the light and shade of the water and reflections - practice!!

Wow!  This shows something that you do so well (in particular and among your peers): you create wonderful depth by bringing into focus the main elements -- leaving the rest blurred just the right amount.

Yep, I really like this one a lot Glenys. Your color and brushwork are always lovely, the only reasons I can think of for 'liking' (admiring) some of your works a 'bit less' is the composition - but that could well be, of course, just my (own peculiar personal ;D) 'taste'! The compo of this one seems  good to me - especially the NOTAN!

This is really beautiful.. I love the way you muted and blurred the background to highlight the boats..great lively brushwork makes the water sing!
