It’s the little perfect details like how the view of the underwater clears with the shadow of the boat, that make this a masterpiece. Excellent work Graham.
Hi Jim, this was a challenge I just had to rise to, its those kind of details that fascinate me so I appreciate your comments very much, thanks Jim. G

I love the colours…the lime greens just sing!..and the blues…gorgeous… the lighting effect here is delicious!
Hi Pamela, I’m glad you think so…thank you! G
What a beautiful job you have done on this scene from the sun on theboys shoulder to the wonderful shadow on the water from the mast of theboat and everything Jim and Vicky have mentioned too. So well done!
Hi Maryann, I appreciate your comments, thank you very much. G
this is “Exquisite” work!!!!! Your water portrayal and the composition are just fabulous!!
Hi Catherine, thank you for your encouraging comments. G
This is so beautifully done Graham! Like this so much.
Hello Allison, I’m so glad you like it, thank you for your comments. G
I agree with all of the above comments…this is a wonderful work ! The balance by the small human figure, as opposed to the larger areas at the upper part of the composition , is just perfect!
Hello Mrs Willow, I hoped that the composition would balance well despite the difference in proportions, thank you for your encouraging comments. G
Hi Leslie… such an inventive word! Much appreciated, thank you! G
Wow! I don’t know if I have ever seen a painter attempt to paint the rocks under the boat as seen through the boat’s shadow. Not even such visionaries as Thomas Eakins or Winslow Homer, which I was just visited at LACMA. The depth perception is just amazing.
Hi Randy, I really appreciate your comments and I’m flattered to be compared to such artists as Eakins and Homer but if you look at Freda Surgenor’s work here on RB, you will find better examples than mine!!! G
Wow, this is stunning and an interesting perspective.
Hi Kerry, thank you for your kind comments. G
