My 1st AR painting. I used the oils brush and painted from the photo that I made a tracing image of to get a quick line drawing of general shapes then just started painting. I can paint looser but I didn't think I could pull that off with all the fine detail of a closeup shot of the boat so it's pretty photorealistic. Suggestons welcome. John

Robert, your being too kind but that's never a bad thing.

Caesar, wow, your not only a fantastic linguest but a gentleman. Now that I have had time to look at it longer I see several things I would like to change but since it's not going to hang in the Louvre I think I will just move on the the next one. Thanks for viewing.
