Watercolors of Port Salut at sunset

Hi guys! Here are my last 2 watercolors.
I have done them after an amazing beach in South of Haiti called Port-Salut. It is the only lively place of the area and on a Saturday evening Port Salut truly comes to life!Couples are taking romantic stroll along the beach, local kids are playing around making as much noise as they can, asking everyone for candies, Zouk concerts are on, everyone is dancing, and fishermen are grilling their takes of the day, mending their net, elderly men are making straw-hats and the youngsters are standing by their motorcycles with their cleanest shirts on.
The day I visited the beach was beyond busy but at sea, 500 meters away from the shore everything was silent, a fisherman was resting enjoying the beautiful sunset. The scenery was so peaceful that I thought I'd try depict it. Here is the result, I hope you like it.
I have been following a lot of tutorials lately to improve my watercolor technique and I have the impression that I am slowly getting better at it. I finally understand how to work with the amount of water So I will be doing a lot of waterscene next week before I start my Wildlife series. I still have 12 watercolors to do for my book project and I have to say I never thought I would enjoy it so much!
