This is the latest challenge for " Different Strokes From Different Folks " site where we do our own interpretation of the subject presented by Karin Jurick.

Beautiful! I really love the interplay of the clouds!

Angela Elledge said...

Hi Dominique,
This is awesome, so much here that I like...the swirly clouds, water reflection and the boat's texture. I have to say the one thing I thought of in your interpretation of the rower is that she appears very confident. Well done.

Leigh said...

Edward Burton said...

Great job, Dominique - beautiful colors and I love the addition of the clouds.

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

Very nice Dominique, I like the sense of movement in the water and the sky!

The Bull said...

I agree with Sheila, the clouds really liven up the scenery! Beautiful use of colors, in all your work!

Ann Gorbett said...

I love seeing the detail. Your reflection is really a wonderful combination of strokes. And those clouds-really fantastic.

Hi Dominique. I love how you captured the very subtle color of the boat, and how your ripples and clouds echo each other!

Beautiful - can't really say anything new - I like it for all of the above stated reasons. Nicely done! I haven't had the time to even check out DSFDF for the longest time - I miss it, am eager to get back to it too. It is a good discipline. Blessings-

Rosemary said...

Bill Gavin said...

Nice. The clouds add a feeling of air and distance.

Dominique,
I like your rendition. I have just started using acrylic for my figure/portrait painting. So each of them is a learning experience. I always try to visualize it like an oil painting whenever I use acrylic. It seems you have a good experience in the medium.

dominique eichi said...

Bill,
Thank you, Your pics looks like you need to be in the same painting !!

dominique eichi said...

rajalekshmy,
Thanks for stopping by. For me Acrylics are faster so I have to paint faster it forces me to do that . Thats the man reason I use them. I hope you enjoy them.

Ann Reyes said...

Dominique, I like the reflections and the very nice colors all over. Thanks for visiting my blog.

dominique eichi said...

Ann ,
Thank you. I did enjoy using those colors. DSFDF is so much fun.

Vern Schwarz said...

Dominique, real nice job on this. Great colour with movement and interest in the sky and waves.

dominique eichi said...

Thanks Vern, I appreciate feedback.

Molly Mansfield said...

I shall have to agree with everyone, your sky is truly fascinating.
