Great work on the challenge! I like your treatment of the sky and water, and the figure is beautifully balanced in the boat.

great entry for DSFDF. I had such a hard time with that horizon line keeping it straight . Yours is fabulous.

Claire said...

Thanks for the kind comments, Kat.

Claire said...

Dominique, I appreciate your mentioning the horizon line - I just had to hold my breath while I painted so that my hand didn't shake!
It helped that the piece was only 6 X 8.

Love the colors. The deep blues you have used in the reflection are terrific. Actually with a very limited palette, I think you did a super job!

Rosemary said...

What a great job, Claire! You kept the mood and enhanced it...your water moves and sky has atmosphere! Applause!

Claire said...

Thank you, Nithya. I enjoyed the challenge of using a limited palette.

Claire said...

Thanks so much, Rosemary.
