  2. Gorgeous work, Arti. I can see that it is close to noonish in this pic by the short shadows. What phenomenal work you did on those shadows and the light. The figures are perfection as is the brightly lit water.

  11. Thank you Tony, Michelle, Nouvelles.

    Sherry, i always wanted to paint water --I did it here with minimum colors--just used a bit of yellow with blue for shadows and left the white of paper for light.Glad you liked it.

  12. Thank you Tito, Vinayak and Albert..I value your comments ver much.
    Gwen, figures do intimidate me..I almost forced myself to do this composition--my comfort zone is faces and portraits!

    Thank you, Liz.I did meddle with the original photo..eleminated the trees and shoreline to keep the upper portion white.
