I added more color . not sure If I should mess with it more ? any suggestions. The rocks are pretty bare with no green on it . I like the blue of the ocean but not sure if it needs more additional colors .

Bert,

Jacky looks fabulous but I cannot figure out where she is sitting.  Is it the back of a boat?  Not sure why there is a boat next to her?

thanks , its interesting how peoples views are so different . The boat is some decoration the restaurant must have put there . its very high on top of these cliffs in Greece I believe .Almost all the buildings are white .I still have no idea what she is sitting on . Some white concrete slab I presume .

OK, Bert, now it makes sense.  Since I had assumed she was sitting on the back of a fancy yacht, the boat looked out of place.

It makes more sense now.

Jacky will be so pleased with this.  She looks gorgeous.

Well done Bert you have captured Jacky beautifully :clap: .....perhaps a little more reflection in the water will lift it , also Im not sure where the sun is positioned as the building seems to not have shadows that are consistent with a sunny day

Bert, this just keeps getting better! I am experiencing some of that sun today  :sweat: .

I like the addition of the bird, I think you've captured the brightness of the day perfectly. I would put the brush down now. Excellent work.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
