This painting is of Islands off the coast of my state. They are mostly uninhabited except for seasonal fishermen. It has the calmest waters.
I used about 6 glazes of different colours to try and achieve the light. Hopefully I have :sweat:
It is a 62 x 62cm gallery canvas.

Nice work, Terri.  Maybe blur the reflection of the hull of the boat on the left a bit?

Otherwise, it is lovely.  Nice soft colors.

 :clap: Lovely painting!  I agree with Mea, though, about the reflection of the left-hand boat.

Don't know how I missed this one but you have captured the "calmness" of it all Terri.  Another wonderful job.
