CatSwift, this is simply astounding work. The one with the ship at rest during sunset.... would you be interested in selling it?

Not selling any yet, just focusing on learning right now.  cheers.

Nice - I've got the wife and kids watching Bob Ross episodes in the evening so it was fun to see this.

i hope they enjoy it! i've watched plenty of bob, but never got the wife and kids into it.

Overall your ability to paint nature is good, but ships look bad. I would suggest you to go to NA get in the frigate, then park it somewhere and try to replicate it in your paintings. Once you learn to produce high detailed ships in your paintings you will be able to make $ selling them. Do not be afraid to simply replicate old Naval paintings. The more ships you paint the better you will get. I would start with Anatomy of the ship and Perspective basics.

I actually thought his was considerably better than mine....granted I have more of a traditionalist nature to my style...

yes, i didn't post them chronologically here, but some of my first ships had some critical problems. if you want to see them in order you'd need to look on reddit.  i'll keep practicing :)

try replicate that one.

step 1 draw the ship with pencil on the canvas not a coal one but one that has a more organe tint to it.

step 2 ignore the ship focus on whater background sky and the shore.

once the background and the raw ship is done you can start focusing on the ship.

thats how most naval painters do it : painting starts at 8:20

 

 

here some offical loading screen art work from NA wich were sort of made in a similar way.
