Re: Creative Interpretations - Chinese Boats

Here's my go.

This did require some color correction. I wanted the walls of the buildings on the left and in the backgound to have a more peachy glow and the boat canvases needed more saturation and I also gave them a little hue tweak.

Nagel watercolor brushes etc. per my latest experiments.

Looks like a Sampan jam. Nice shot.

Just finished reading a great biography on lyricist Johnny Mercer. Must have still been thinking about his great way with words. What a talent he was!

Re: Creative Interpretations - Chinese Boats

Gilkster. You might have "missed the right side", but you know, it the purple tones really play off the yellows in a lovely way. I like it!

Palms!!! I love your painting as well as the manipulation! And look at all that texture!!! You stepped out of your comfort zone on this one! Really, really nice.
