What do you think of the orange fabric for the background? Is it too high chroma? Would it be better as a pastel? Would a different colour be a better compliment?
I'm trying to figure out the Munsell colour wheel.
The arrangement of the boats made for an interesting design.
I think they would make a nice 8x8 painting too with the area above the boats cropped off.
Burr....I'm chilled to the bone :)

It was the most glorious December 22nd! Amazing! Warm in the sun and no wind on the spot where I was painting.
The sea kept changing colours. Sometimes it was green blue, and sometimes it was purple. The cliffs were aglow with creamy peaches and oranges.
Every critter in the vicinity came to say hello.
I feel like the luckiest person on earth!

Lately I've been working on several studio paintings for upcoming shows. This has left me with little attention to give to my daily paintings. There are several shows coming up in Feb March and April that I want to participate in.
Tonight is the Show Opening at the Well on Fort. The reception is 7 to 9. Hope you can make it.
I also like the feet. Those soft ballet shoes make the feet look flat. This is especially so for children's feet.
Colour to come soon.
I struggled with the blues. The snow shadows were pthalo and the sky was the problem. It was a winter sky. Pthalo just wasn't right. Finally today I tried cobalt blue with a touch of yellow. I like the sky now. But the steeples are crooked and the electric wires are too thick. (in reality there were twice as many electric wires).
