Low tide, Penang, Malaysia

I very much admire your skills Alix, a great subject to paint.

Thank you, Alan. Trying to keep in mind the angle of the boat when painting the various bits of superstructure was quite tricky!

Super picture. Lots of lovely details.

Thanks, Shirley. Lots of fiddly frustrating details more like!

Beautifully painted. Great technique again Alex. The angle of the boat and jetty are spot on.

Thank you, Seok. The light was very appealing at the time so no exaggeration required!
