    I love the movement of your painting. It makes me almost get the feel of the ocean spray coming off of the dolphin.
    Your water is also very good.

    Hi Juma, This has a surreal yet happy feel to it. I’m sure those dolphins are showing off for the boaters.

    I love the texture – the spray from the dolphins really stands out. I love the contrast too with the lights and darks – maybe it could have done with a little lighter colour nearer the horizon – but then I’m only being ‘picky’. Well done. Jayne

    Attractive image. I love the contrast and depth in the painting.
    Then, the movement of the Dolphins is exciting.
    Great job Juma.

    very nice. Pretty colors. Especially like the “splash” water around the dolphins.

  20. Amanda on Wed, 6th Aug 2008 11:29 am 

    Lovely subject and I really like the detail of the water falling from the dolphins, well done.

    For me the whole painting has a very compelling texture and use of paint in a unique and delightful style.

    Hi Juma,
    You have captured great movement with the dolphins jumping out of the water, and the painting gives the viewer a feeling of happiness! The color of the water is also nicely painted.

    I have a couple of tips about composition. The action of the dolphins is on the right side of the painting, cutting the painting in half. By moving one of the dolphins lower and over to the left of the painting a bit more, the dolphins would then take more of a bite out of that left side of the painting and therefore, connect to the entire painting. Also, by adding some of the colors to the dolphins and to the water splash area, that you have used in the water itself, you would create more color harmony within your painting.

    You have achieved great textural contrast and your painting has evoked a very happy feeling. Keep painting and thank you for sharing with all of us!

    Ingrid ;-)
