You are a master with color. So appealing and beautiful.

I always appreciate your feedback, Philippe.  I like the way you have emphasized the reflection.  In the photos that I am using as references, the reflection on the water is not that strong and I think that is what has led to it not being as strong in the painting.  However, I like the way it looks when you show it brighter.  Thanks!

You know it's because I love your paintings that I dare to do a suggestion about reflections of the sun on the sea.

Hi, Debra. Thanks for your comments. I also take a long time when I paint. I was trying to do something quicker and it helped to have a simple composition on a small canvas. I struggle to paint quickly too, but these worked out. One thing I have learned from this group is to keep on painting and you will make progress. So, keep on painting!

Thx, Wenda. Not much detail in these fast paintings, but it helps to play with the colors for a larger painting sometime.
