Lovely painting! I like the concept and atmosphere of it a lot, and especially the technique you've used on the water.
The only thing that might improve on this slightly is that the ripples in the wake of the boat would come out quite a bit further on the right hand side - almost symmetrical to what you've done on the left.
Wow - this is really great. I am not sure with the proportions. I cannot really tell, how far the ship is away from the entrance. There is a lot of tension in the picture because there are different figures in different proportional relation to each other, different than you would expect them to, so it does capture your eye Well done, as always. It is a great pleasure to have you on ones watch-list
