Great Painting
by: Karla

Wow I love your water! Excellent job! I think maybe the boat needs just a bit of shadowing on the inside...But the painting is great the way it is. I do not think it looks unfinished. Can't wait to see more of your work. Karla USA

Rough Water
by: breighdi

Hi Bohdan, Nice painting! I will be looking for your water colors. In this one maybe try a darker color the length of the boat inside down the middle to show more depth inside the boat, but then leave that lighter color before you get back up to the right side top of the boat. Hope thats not to confusing sorry. Also, you might consider putting a few rocks along the shore to emphasis the water splashing up on the shore. I think its great that the boat is empty though. That water is so rough...hope they had their life jackets on :)
