My first digital work, the sea
Done in Painter X with Artist's Oils. Any critiques are greatly appreciated.

i really like the calm atmosphere, the only thing that bothers me a bit is the border between rocks and water in the underpart of your painting
oh, and by the way: great colors!

That's awesome, but I would like if there was a more defined horizon line. I think it's because the sky is reflected too much in the water. It would still have some blue/white/clear tones in it, even with that sky.

so buy a calculator, study this stuff later!"

Nice mood! A lot of sunsets lately.
Did you use photo ref for this?

It seems a bit scratchy, and if the main focus points were off-center, it would be a better composition. Centering things tends to remove interest from a picture, rather than adding to it.
Also, colors typically aren't that bright. I'm pretty sure I know the reference that you painted this from - that picture, like many pictures of sunsets and sunrises - have been oversaturated for effect. If you tone down the colors a bit, I think it will help to make everything look more realistic.
