ST Ives, Not just a pretty place.

ST Ives,  Not just a pretty place.

Very well done, William. The boats and the beach are superbly painted. However, I feel it would be an even better piece If you were to crop it and take the bottom two thirds. Just my opinion. Best regards.

A wonderful painting, William! I love the sunny atmosphere and the composition, not to mention your expert handling of the boats.

I've stood in just this spot so many times, and have probably painted the same boats! Lovely painting and you have managed to capture a feel of the special light of St Ives.

Nice work and technique

Have to agree with the above comments....another wonderful painting. Very well done.

Thank you all for your encouragement and Yu Ping Eddy , I agree with you that a cropped top would improve the painting but unfortunately its a stretched box canvas, also it would look like lots of other paintings just of the boats, I was hoping to show a bit of work going on , but I admit that the top right of the painting is lacking in real interest , I may try to remedy that later, thanks for your observations and may I wish you all a very happy Christmas including all POL..

It was news to me Kirstie so thank you for bringing glad tidings a little early, I am really amazed at being in the company of such wonderful artists and thrilled at the same time. thank you to for your comments : )

Just up my street William! Such a lovely view of boats! beautifully painted.I like the strong shadows.... amongst other things. You well deserve to be "in the charts".

Thanks a lot Avril , I see so many really talented artists work that I feel extremely lucky to have had a painting picked, its an early Christmas present . : )

Hi William, congratulations to you too on making the top ten again!

Congratulations, William. I am away for the holiday and thanks for telling me the news....

Great portfoilos William. I particularly like this one. Lovely use of colour and shadow. Thanks so much for commenting on my work.

What is it about harbours and sailboats sunstruck that makes me want to go down to the sea! Summer holiday memories perhaps: This is great - beautifully and sharply done creating that summer feel. I love this. Alison

Gorgeous William, marvellous colours, love the boats
