Nice work Paul. Boat scenes always do it for me.

Fabulous Paul, those masts etc must have taken some patience to do.

Excellent reflections and light.

Three good posts, Paul. I like this one best.

You got a bargain there Dixie! Lovely composition here and super boats.

Thank you all for your comments, they are very much appreciated. Your right Tessa I could not refuse the offer, sadly it cannot be repeated, still have plenty left to work.

Lovely nautical scene Paul, like the muted palette.

Thank you for your comments Alan I wanted a subdued look and have a preference for this in my paintings, thought there are time to be brighter.

I think the rigging is great, you must have a really steady hand to do all that. I love the reflections.

What a bargain! Love the painting, so crisp.

Thank you for your comments Carole and Dennis. I did cheat a little with the rigging Dennis a faint pencil line helps a lot, but I use a pad I made to place on the picture so I can steady my hand much used as I get older.
