Louisa,

I really like the yellow boat.  It's a great focal point with lots of drama.  Nice seagulls.

I think I am bothered more by the black rope, mainly because it looks too much like the black rim of the boat.  As pretty as the yellow/black combination looks on the boat, it might have been better to make the trim a different color so that it did not look like an outline.

Horizon line in the very center dips on the left side just a bit.

I really do like this.  I do not mean to be nit-picky, but I know you are like me and want to do better every time.  Sometimes just the tiniest changes can make a big difference.

Your work is incredibly good. No doubt about that.

aloha

Lovely work Sharon, i like how you did the water arround the boat.  I agree with Nolan, also you may want to make the waves smaller in the distance..  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lovely work Louisa, You should add a shadow to your stick and there seams to be a gost line above your black rope.  Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just when you think a lesson looks fairly simple, You have to go and complicate it! :2funny: :2funny:
I had photographed this boat the last time I left the house on an outing with my hubby before he became bed bound, in anticipation of when this lesson was released on artbynolan!  Oh my hat, did I find out I know zilch!  Had no idea what size the boat should be, what its shadow would look like from that angle and a host of other problems.  Anyway I bashed on and made a mental note to self not to be "clever" next time! :2funny: :2funny:

So here is my version of the lesson (by the way Nolan did you know, am sure you must have been told, that for at least 10 minutes we have the privilege of looking at just your palette in the video!  Oops!) around 53 minutes in. :coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

Ms. Fig,

I just happened to watch that video yesterday and see that you did a fantastic job, especially since you substituted an entirely different boat.

The only things that seems to need adjustment would be the shading on the hull of the boat as it seems to be the same tone of lovely blue almost all the way around and there would need to be some kind of sand distortion and water under the boat as it is sitting into the sand.

Otherwise, you are one smart cookie for making that substitution!

your boat fits in beautifully Fiona.  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I think you did a great job with this painting. Just add more contrasts and intense colours to the right hand hill to bring it more forward

PS - thank you for letting me know about the mis-edit, we are busy fixing it now :flowers:

This painting is a Calamity of Errors! I don't know why I didn't give up. One error right after another.. I didn't get at all how Nolan got the water sparkly. Every time I tried it I just ruined the water more and more. Oh well.. comments and critiques please..also my camera broke, I'm using my tablet and I don't know how to use it right. The sky looks a lot better in person. The camera picket up the overhead lights

 :heeha: I love your little boat.  :clap: :clap: :clap: I've always liked this scene ever since it came out. I think you've done a great job on it.

Not sure how you'd make the water sparkly in oils. Come on oilies.... this gal needs a hand!
Cheers, Val

Robyann,

Not sure what isn't good about it.  I like it.  Maybe some shading on the hitching post (mooring??) .  Not sure of nautical words.

Not sure if the shore is supposed to look elevated - looks that way to me.

I still like it, though.

aloha

This looks wonderful to me.  :heeha: Your colors and contrasts are great!  :clap: The pole holding the rope does look flat though. Try to add some darker values to get the rounding effect. I'm not exactly sure how Nolan instructs doing the sparkles, but I would let it dry and add them with the tip of a very fine brush, or maybe even a toothpick dipped in paint. Is it weird that I use whatever I have around to paint with?  :idiot2:

Thanks so much for the encouragement. I thought the shore looked elevated too but wasn't sure how to fix it. I will fix that pole. The Camera cut off the little shadow I painted by the pole. Again, Thanks Mea, EmmaLee and Val..
