Figures on a Boat 8"x 10"

Our plein air group had a work shop with Jerry Ross this weekend.  It was lots of fun.  If you don't know his work, he advocates stopping before the painting reaches what would be traditionally a finished state.  This maintains the original freshness and vigor of the sketch.  This was my first try from a photo he had taken in Italy.  I love this one.  The placement of the figures, their silhouettes against the sea and sky.  But I can't bring myself to think of it as a painting that can be framed and hung on a wall.
