Handfast Point, still in progress..

Nearly there....I think.....

lighten and grey down the colour on the stacks,
emphasis on the light and make it warmer,
more depth to the water with highlights and shadows
resolve the headland that is on the horizon which I think needs to darken a shade?

Hmmm ok.... so maybe it'll be a while yet. Any thoughts?

Lighten/Darken....Horizon......
It depends what time of the day you wish to show....I think it looks good as is...!
'More depth to the water' I think you'll find it's deep enough already.
Seriously though, it's in good proportion, the stacks don't dominate the picture. Yes, looks good. Well, that's my opinion....
and, l'm stick'in to it....! :)

I think you chose the right shape for this piece and I like that the rocks don't start until over half way up with lots of sea leading up to them.
It looks finished to me (maybe make the rocks further away a tad lighter to give them distance).
The transition from dark foreground to light horizon and sky works really well .......... best not to do too much more on it I think, best not to overwork it ;-)

Thank you both for your comments,you've helped a lot. I've had a lot of indecision over this painting. It's always really helpful to see it through someone elses eyes.
