Feedback on a commissioned Painting

This watercolour of the Fishing Boat “Blue Billie” in the Marina at Coffs Harbour was commissioned by Lana Jane for a special birthday present for her Father-in-Law (who owns the boat).  Lana Jane submitted some close-up photos of the boat for my guidance but, after thinking about this, I decided to re-imagine the Boat at a moorage in the marina to enhance and localize the picture to its home berth with Muttonbird Island in the background.


Lana and her partner were blown away by the outcome as per the attached text:

“ GARY! Honestly, the painting is way more than what we had imagined!!!!!! Thank you so much, my partner and I are beyond stoked with the outcome!”

A beautiful painting and what a buzz  to my friend's yacht included in that scene. Wow! Well Done.

I saw your work at the market when I visited Australia in December

and really want a couple of pieces.
