First off, wow! The colors are stunning and the way that the mountains have the glow, all reflecting towards the ship really makes it the center of the viewer's focus. The scenery in general (i.e.; Mountains, water, clouds, etc.). Speaking from my point of view, as a student learning the elements and principles of design, you have covered nearly all of your bases. The color, again, is outstanding. The textures that you have given to each of the parts of the landscape individually makes the piece come together quite nicely. Shape, form, etc., are all distinctly created from years and years of experience. The concept if a single source of focus surrounded by darker, somewhat less detailed structures is well executed, though it is an idea that you follow through almost all of your paintings, showing a slight lack of originality in composition.

Now, getting a tad bit more cynical, while your painting does have the focused areas, there is a lack of clarity in the composition. By that, I mean your painting should have a bit more of contrast coming from your abject. The colors of the ship itself are actually a bit bland in comparison to your overall pallet. In the water and mountains, you have some beautiful clues and greens, but your ship, while well crafted, is nearly monotone. Even a slight difference like bringing out a bit of darkness in harsh likes showing the construction of the boat, or making that flag on top pop out just a tiny bit more would do wonders to bring a tiny bit more focus to the center. The brushstrokes even being softer in the surroundings and more tough on the central point would really help (or vice versa).

While I do enjoy the small background details, and the bold foreground details, I feel that either making your warm color pallet fade into more of a cool side in the foreground the bring out the contrast in whats near and far away.

Overall, this is a beautiful piece and I love the feel of the warm colors and the tinge of darkness around the edges. Keep up the great work man, I love to see you doing all of these, and I hope you continue!
