Good job on this, Dixie. You say you've not done figures like this all works well. I can see why you were attracted to the old photo.

Very effective figures, great pebbly beach, too!

Thank you Lew and Thaila for you positive comment, it alway pleasing to get feed back from people who are good painter.

You've done this really well and have captured the figures spot on. The whole composition is great.

The figures are so well painted. They really bring so much life to the painting

I always like a boatie picture and this is no exception. Excellent.

Thank you Diana and Stephen for you comments. I was worried about doing the figures as it’s a new venture for me, I was happy with the outcome, pleased that others have liked them too.

Lovely work and good inter-action among the guys

I expect they are taking about Brexit. Lots of interesting detail here Paul, like it.

Thank you John, talking about anything else but Britex.

Very good figures, very believable poses and toned.

Love this Paul, a fabulous amount of detail, great scene and lovely colour choices. Top drawer : )

Watercolour on 90lb a3 paper. From an old photo of Hastings fishermen and boats. I have never painted figures so detailed of as a focus in a painting before
