Think I'm going to leave this alone for a while until the painting tells me the next way to go. Not totally happy with the sky or the moon rise, but it's getting there. Need to do a little more with the water in way of shadowing and work on the splash. I thought about putting in another dolphin; however, with the way the current one is situated, to add another would be too crowded. Perhaps one at a later date. 

I do appreciate all the comments and input, it is very helpful.

I think your idea's sound great.  Looking forward to seeing the finished picture.

BB, thank's so much for your input, it means a lot to me. I think you are "more" than qualified to help. You forget, I've seen what YOU can do. ;-) I agree with you that the dolphine needs more work. Just have to figure out how to go about getting it right. You are spot on with the reflection needing more yellow in it and I will be darkening the sky quite a bit more. Trying to give the impression that it's not quite pitch black yet. Thanks for all your help.

I've seen your pointillism and it's lovely. Can't wait to see what else you come up with. Thanks again.

Hi Terri! I doubt I'm qualified to help you with 'how to' on this, but I can give you my thoughts on what you have done so far.   I think that it appears a bit flat, maybe a little more light and shade to round out the dolphin and some yellow in the sea to reflect the moon more.  The sky could be darker so there is more contrast against the sea and some glow around the moon.  I don't think it needs another dolphin.  I admire you trying to get your art flowing again.  I'm still doing dots! I've discovered it is called pointillism, so that sounds much more official than "I'm too scared to make a bold stroke on a blank piece of paper"!!!!

Good point! Thanks. I will have to think about that.

if you wanted another dolphin you could have one off in the distance!
