Thanks Mea and Ballarina. 

Val I i will work on the black. At first I did the boat as a black shadow and hated it so added color. Will take color to edge (hopefully I can mix close to the same color.   :pullhair: ).

What a challenge these acrylics have been!!!!!

I sure appreciate everyone's help and feel much better that I no longer have a ghost boat. I was creeping myself out.  :2funny:

Val - I like this better.  I think getting rid of the black outline on the sails made a big difference.  What do you think? :painting:

Yes, good on Val for giving you that feedback, Sherri.  Looks better without the outline.  The boat looks a bit too bright for the rest of the scene.  Wonder if it might blend in better with a darker wash over it?  Just a though.

Great painting regardless.

 O0 Much better without the outline. Perhaps a light wash of colour on the hull would  tone it down a bit. I'd leave the sails as is since it is so close in the foreground. I kept running that through my head with my little yellow boat in the pond...I had originally thought to keep it white. I think it turned out better by adding the colour, just think on it.
Cheers, Val

Zahn,

Looks good so far.

Do a test first by painting the birds and boat on a piece of clear plastic (I use half a sheet protector).  Put it on top of the painting and see how it looks.  Redo it until you are happy with it.

When I did this painting, I followed how Nolan did it step-by-step.  It came out so well I did a happy dance.  So easy.

You CAN do this.

One thing about acrylics is you can wash it off before it dries if you don't like it. Jay you have a great start here.  O0 Don't be afraid of putting a boat or birds on there. they can always be painted over.
