I keep coming back to this painting. I love the way the light has been managed on the side of the ship and then reflected in abstract form in the water. Just stunning.

That is also my thoughts when I look at this painting, Bill.
Marek`s understanding of light, shadow, colour and reflection is quite humbling.

regards, Donald

Thank You Gentleman, whole life with bolts and nuts is helping with perspective which is helping to build the highlights and shadows, The painting has a problem technically, i choose to paint this image on canvas and this was a problem. Canvas (Classen 13DP, best Classen on market) has an aggressive “tooth” and when is a very “tight” image a lot details in small area (12X16 this one) is a struggle to cover canvas with paint in form of thin lines (strokes) including shadows on those lines. The problem is because small brush with fine point and very light touch is jumping on canvas skipping lower parts of canvas thread.When you make finally part and looks OK the next day you may discover many not covered white dots . Looks like pinholes on lousy car paint job. So additional work on those “holidays” it is difficult job and loosing in same time energy to paint it. Conclusion is that, this type of painting is asking for panel but time to time we making not the best decisions knowing results up front, why?.....mast be aging, so i choose keep “walking deep in the mud” hoping to rich the hard land, many hours.

Beautiful work, white spots or no. You have done so well to cram so much detail into so small an area. Looking at the main subject it is easy to miss the fine way you have portrayed the background buildings.
