Wow, David, this is excellent! I think this is a bit looser than your usual paintings (not including your sketches from your trip) and I really love it! The shadows on the buildings are excellent and so are your boats and the sunlight sparkling on the water. I want to try this soon as it is a really nice scene. 😀
Lovely painting David full of light and lots of clarity. Would second the mast issue need to go into the boat. I would love to see the same clarity that you have in this painting mixed up with the looseness you demonstrated in your sketchbooks. It’s great to see you take on the painting there is a lot going on so it’s not as easy as it may appear at first. Lovely work.
