Sailing At Sunset

Something a little bit different from me; trying to experiment with different styles of art.

I started with the red glow, which suggested a setting sun. So I added some water, but I felt it needed focus and I though the ship silhouette would set it off nicely.

I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but didn't save work in progress so thought I'd submit it, as is.

I might try a new, or slightly different version of this another time.

A 100% Paint.NET creation.

Preview is 800 x 600, download for full 1600 x 1200 version. Enjoy!

Sometimes I sit in front of my PC and go blank - on other occasions I start something and all the pieces begin to fall into place. This was one of those times where I could visualize the finished piece in advance - perhaps that's why I'm not totally happy with it (it didn't exactly match the picture in my mind).

As I said to Madhatterl7 - feel free to PM me through the PdN forum if you see anything you like and want to know how I achieved it. I'm just happy that my work is appreciated, it makes it all worthwhile.

I love it.
It is a bit different than what you normally post.
Great job!

Nice job on the water by the way.

Thanks, glad you liked it. It's always good to try something different now and again.
I messed about with the water for ages, I still think it could have been better; I wanted something a bit calmer, but still with that watery feel. I think I'll try something similar again at some point.

I encourage you to do so.
You are really on to something there.
Great job!
