    you’ve done a marvellous job on what appears to me to be a tough subject.

  • Thank you Douglas. It is an old painting, and I cannot even remember if I thought it difficult at the time. I think “difficult” depends on your artistic mood that day ……have you noticed that? If I’m in a grump, I can’t do squat.

    This is a very detailed and fresh looking watercolour, Linda.

    The modern boat against the modern cityscape background is interesting, and a fine inclusion of the figures – complete with sunglasses!
    The excellent waves and spray, add the perfect finishing touch!

  • Hello Colin! Hope all is well with you. Thanks for your comment….I always savor a comment from you, because I consider you a real professional. Yes, I was looking at the sunglasses the other day, and couldn’t help but laugh a little.
