“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself.” 
― Rachel CarsonThe Sea Around Us

Beautiful. I admit, I zoomed in on the boat because I had to see all those gorgeous colors you laid down to read "white" in the painting. You have quite a variety of colors in there, cool and warm.

Thanks Rhonda. I love how much colour can be added to a piece and it still read "white". I tend to put in colours that are found elsewhere in the painting to try to harmonize the whole piece.

I find that any colour will work as long as it is the correct value. I also throw in a few specks of complementary or sometimes completely contrasting, colours for interest.

I'm not sure if its still in print, it was published initially in 1951 and was a best seller.

Perfect. Perhaps you'll have a chance to look at it. Yes, universities have a lot of obscure and out of print books at times.
