“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt.
I kept the palette limited for this painting, making the greens more aqua, and teal, and keeping the warms red orange rather than the range of what they really were.
Here is my reference photo, which allows you to see how I tweaked the colors:

Really like this–partly because of the subject matter and partly because of how you limited the pallet. I’d like to see the photo (if you have one) in order to see what choices you made. Also like the way you suggested the sailors in the boat.
Thanks Mady, I attached the photo on the post, my guess is you aren’t the only one who would like to compare my painting to my reference.
