So very Japanese in its economy of stroke, its simplicity of color and spare, minimal design.

This is one of the best I've seen--so clear and beautiful in design, and the boats hold the space so well that the water can 'float' and play. Really lovely..and different, too.

Well it may feel as though the picture was there before you started but it certainly doesn't look like it! Did you take your 'toned raw/burnt sienna board' with you or is your (current?) little island's art shop well stocked up with it just in case rather less gifted painters (punters, perhaps) have the same idea?
Another delight, whatever. Many thanks once more.

"So very japanese"indeed,as said Shirley Fachilla.A parallelism also with "Morning in the lagoon"(Venice)and this one,but of course,in an other color scale.
What an uplifting picture!

Another bonny and well executed masterpiece. Thanks, I'm sure you will become a rich artist,if not already :-))

Yes, I think this is one of the best so far! The composition becomes almost abstract, and the complementary blues and yellow work beautifully in both the subject and the interplay of water and sand. Beautiful, and simple.

I love paintings of boats; I took many photos of them when we were in Portovenere, Italy (you MUST go--the light, the color!).
Thank you for this trip to Bali,but I must go now and chip more ice off my sidewalk!!

This is the kind of painting I like. Its very simple, its honest, its complete. It just is!!
Well done.

Yes, this is wonderful for all the right reasons. Explanations of your color, etc. are of great interest to your fans (read students).
