My submission for the IF topic 'Breezy'. Great sailing weather is a strong and steady breeze! This is a bit of a re-attempt of a previous topic, Sail. I was happy with the first trial but thought I could do the idea a lot more justice. I'm really pleased with how this one has turned out! I worked from a photo to help with the lighting, and think that made a lot of difference. I've been trying to develop my watercolour skills so before and after attempts at a similar theme give me chance to look at my progress. Let me know what you think :o)

I love how the water is splashing up. Great picture!

I like this one, but don't remember your "Sail" to compare the two.

Nice, I'm a big fan of watercolors.

I like this piece, love the light colours employed here.
I am not a watercolour expert, so I'm not in the position to give opinion on the technical side.
But overall composition and style are perfectly shaped out here.
The movement is very pleasing too!

This has a lovely feeling of movement to it. You did a great job with the spraying water, too. Very nice ; )

Thank you all for your kind comments :o)
Focus_ret, the original piece 'sail' is linked in the text, I've updated it because it wasn't obvious before.

Thanks for visiting!
