Somewhere along the Alaskan coast.

Actually, this is a reclamation project. Probably a year ago, I did the water, land and sky, but then was lost as to where to go with it. Stumbled upon it a couple of days ago, and decided to take a stab at fixing it.
Did some touchup on the water and land, then added the sailing ships and wildlife. Hopefully, it's now a little more interesting.

Thanks, I'm really glad you like it.
Makes the 30 or 40 times I started over on those bears worth it! LOL..

Sometimes I did that too for my incompleted ones. I will open them once in awhile and then sometimes the ideas just come up. It's nice to see you haven't abandoned this one, the new addition made this sceney painting very alive. I feel the wild life nature from it. :)

Thanks Pai.. Most of the ones I quit on, were for good reason - just really bad. :) At least this one had a pretty good start, so I had something to build on.

I like the way you changed your style from land to see. The land is rough as are the bears but the sea is very smooth. It makes a nice contrast.
