I really like this. Calm, peaceful, tranquil. I've been to a place that looks very much like this and now I want to go back. Thanks.

I think this must be the best computer oriented work of art I've ever seen!! I dont know how you do these, but this is just awesome Wendy!! Congrats on this!! I love the mountains and that sky! But the reflection of the boat in the water is just fantastic!!

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

I believe this is the most beautiful image created by computer I have ever seen. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, the magistic mountains, the calm water and the lovely sailboat. How inviting this is. Fantastic work from you. In my fav's and a 10/10 from me.

I will let everyone's raves speak to the respect for the art work and how it was graphically created. Obviously, this is a stellar piece of work....


As someone who has done a bit of sailing, I must confess that I am not so sure the skipper of this boat would have these sails up catching wind that close to and heading directly for the shore. If this craft was heading in the opposite direction it would be more true to life and instill hope for a voyage just beginning. As the luff in the main intimates, it appears as though the boat is going to run aground, unless the skipper immediately drops sail and cranks the engine below into reverse, actions that will take a lot of time without much water left before sand or rock hits the bottom..

Other than that, it's an incredibly remarkable piece.

I wish I could come up with some extraordinary superlatives that you haven't heard before....but sadly, I can't. Stunning work Wendy, just like an Impressionist painting ...and that reflection you did is amazing. Fantastic work !!

Very nice, you have a great scene going there. I do recomend you lower the boat in the water just a smidgen of a bit more as of now to me it looks to high. Also the sails, I would remove at least the jib sail and add a bit more light/transparency to the main. That way it dosen't look like its full speed ahead onto the beach and the sails don't look so thick. Good job

People ask how I can spend so much time on a computer in a day. I ask how a painter can stand infront of canvas all day.
