I had done a smaller practice piece of the boat and decided it needed a good background. So, i picked the Snow Mountain Lesson and flipped it mirror reverse, I wanted the light from the right side. Deleted the trees and stretched it to give the width I needed. Had a quick browse of the Tall Ship Lesson for the water effect and Boom Boom. :D
I can see some areas that need looking at but as usual please tell me.  :smart:

 :heeha: Bill, you have done an excellent job of taking the parts of those lessons and combining them together.  O0   Your work has made for a wonderful composition. My only comment would be that the land strip between the water and mountains seems to bisect the painting in half, also possibly adjust the value there a bit to give more distance.

Cheers, Val

Great job, Bill.

Love the folks on the decks - well-done figures.  Nice realistic smokestack.

The water around the bottom of the boat looks so real.

I think the mountains in the back seem imposing - maybe recede them a bit - lighter colors?  more blurred?

 :thankyou: Patricia, Mea, Dennis and Win. I did agonise about the strip of land Patricia and Mea I am reluctant to do any more with the mountains. I spent quite a few hours on this and I am into my next one so it will go onto the "Come back to" pile.

Thanks Sharon, I did a practice piece before this but most of my paintings look good from across the room. You must have a small monitor  ::)

Bill,
Paintings are supposed to look their best from a distance of 8-feet, I think.  So if someone gets closer, bop them in the nose!
