This just arrived and I had to come review it right away. When I opened the box all I saw was the edge which was very green and I got a little concerned. My immediate thought when I first saw it out of the box was 'wow, this is really pretty'. It's up on my wall and it looks gorgeous! This was totally worth the countless hours I spent searching through thousands of paintings online. I agree with the review that says the colors are slightly different. If you look at the painting in person the upper left hand corner is actual a VERY dark forest green (looks navy blue when hung) and the sky color has a light green tint in it and soft yellow on the bottom part of the sky. My computer screen shows the sky being more of a light blue. The overall painting on my computer looks very neutral with light blue, gray, tan(the sand), and off white colors. In person it has a lot more warmth to it with the green/yellow tints in the sky and the shadows of the clouds have just a teeny bit of tan in them (they show gray on my screen). It's hanging now on a big wall in my bathroom. I don't have any windows in my bathroom so the forest green may show more true to color if it's in daylight. It's amazing to me how this painting is so simple yet so eye-catching and stunning. The other review is titled peaceful and that is right on. Even though it's not as neutral as I thought it was going to be it's still really pretty and I think I may even start taking baths just to stare at it. Sorry for the long review, but I had this sitting in my shopping cart for days before purchasing it. Hopefully the details help you decide a little quicker if its right for you!
