    Some of your finest skills have surfaced in this work. The way you handled the island’s reflections in the water’s ripples and the the almost unseen rocks beneath the surface of the water in the forground are just a couple examples. Extremely well done Douglas. I’m really impressed.

  • Thanks Jim; I’m happy to hear you say that!

    Hey Douglas! Fantastic water!!!! (My most favourite subject in the whole world I think). This is really terrific. I do admire your work. Maybe I will join Hidemi and have a go at watercolour next year as well! I think it is the hardest medium to master.
