Wow! I love the scenery here! Great use of contrast between the background and the foreground characters. It really makes the characters stand out. I love the way you drew the ripples of the water as well. Very peaceful piece!
Oh, a favourite past-time in my own childhood days.
The perspective on this is just beautiful. I love how the stone looks like it's going to fly right out of the picture. The bright, cheerful yellow against the drizzle and fog, the flock of birds flying overhead and just... The entire thing.. It's almost hypnotic. You can almost hear the morning bird-calls and the splish of the water as the stone goes across...
I only tell it as I see it. I really felt like I was seeing something familiar from my own childhood in it. (Not that I ever took a boat into the middle of the river to skip stones, just the feel of the whole thing)
