Oh, Anne, I love this painting! Really strong design with great abstract shapes. Love your color choices as well! Great style of painting. You inspire me!
Thanks Barbara, I appreciate your comments as I am always trying to be more abstract without losing what the painting is about!
I really like this one. I agree with Barbara--nice abstract shapes.
Thanks Stephanie, for your comments and for stopping by.
Anne, I read that all the old masters painted over their used canvases. I do and do not bother to sand first. No pretensions to being a master. I find painting water a challenge. I may try what you have done here - combined the color blue of the water in light with the well-defined but colorless value/shapes of the shadows and lights. I am tempted to grab a brush and paint your lovely 'map' with some of the complement. Very nice!
Thanks Liz for your reference to the old masters - we are all just in love with painting- whether now or in long gone times. So glad you like the painting.
