Really good colour and value relationships in the boat, Malcolm, and good effort with the water though there are two points there to improve on such as the grey splotches throughout, which could do with reshaping into flatter wave forms and making more blue or bluegreen since the grey seems to be standing out because it’s too neutral. Also, be careful when painting reflections that they don’t extend horizontally beyond the vertical bounds of the object as in the diagram. The figure could do with some shadows. Good effort.
