Hi Carl. Many thanks, as usual, for your feedback. I'll definitely give it a go...

Hi Bernie. I have learned that watercolor never really impregnates the paper. It sort of becomes a frozen dust on and within the paper. You can lighten an area by applying a small drop of water with a very fine brush and dap it off with a paper towel. Keep doing it until you get what you want. But be fast and careful so as to not get the water splotch stain that will ruin your painting. Try what I say on scrap paper before you address the painting. It takes some skill.

Hi E. Thank you so much for your comments, it's good to know that you "love this". I'm afraid that the use of white is frowned upon in my watercolour art class(!) Although I have used it in a couple of winter scenes (but don't tell my art class mentor). I originally painted the sails red, but it didn't seem to work with red sails... Thanks again. Bernie

Agree with Jenn - also, maybe add just a touch-touch of white to the background sails. Or not - I love this! Thank You, E

Many thanks. The first attempt wasn't as "blended"... and didn't work as well... I don't think.

Great image... I like the silence of it... colors are nice.. the transition of tones, well blended...
