Wow, this is fantastic. I think that you've really shown the potential of watercolor here, its expressive yet it does a good job of conveying the mood and lighting of the setting. Its hard picking out anything that really needs improving, I think that perhaps if the edges of the reflections in the water were a little softer in some areas, such as the reflection of the man on the far left and the line between the blue and pink water in the foreground, then the men and the nets would be more distinguishable from the background. Overall I really enjoy this, I think the white speckles are a good addition as well.
What do you think?

Wonderful work here! I am an amateur myself, but I loved this painting at first sight and was dying to give you my two cents. The lighting is phenomenal; the highlight on the freshly wet sand, the illuminated sky, and the back-lit figures! I love the soft atmospheric perspective and the constant movement of the piece. It is evident through your figure design that the work is tolling, but the warmth and calmness of the color and composition imply a serenity in the task and a simple beauty in a day well spent. The only thing I might change (and this is being quite nit-picky) is the lighting on the far left figure. Although his position may warrant more reflected light and weaker shadow as you have here, his lighting in relation to the other figures is ever so slightly distracting, such that my eyes want to separate him from the group. The change would be subtle if any, but all in all I don't think it is needed. I would love a piece like this in my own home... well done.

Superb watercoloring technique. The lighting on the beach is eye-catching. You've depicted Vietnam well.

This is fantastic. I so very much love the mood and subtle detail in this scene. Great color-choices as well as implementing them. I would put this painting on my wall, for sure. Well done.

Indeed this is a really nice piece!  I keep wanting to write something about it and then just end up starring at it instead.  I'd be interested to know how you did the little white specs on the waves coming ashore in the foreground- a little white dry brush?
