It's crit night tonight and it will be at my I need to go out and get a few things, like a bottle of wine or two!

Today I worked on the water, bringing down the reflections of the boats, and at the same time, trying to keep it simple. The last thing I want to do is get carried away with a photo realistic reflection, that's why you don't see the rigging reflected in the water. The bright colors are also toned down quite a bit, water does not reflect like that of a mirror. One is at the same time looking down into the water, so you will pick up the local color of the water in your reflections. If this was a river scene from southern Utah, you would have a lot of sand sediment in the water, which would give an orange and brownish tint to the water. It could still use some fine adjustments here and there, but before I do that, let's want and see what the other artists say about it.

There is always tomorrow!
