Practicing waving

No, not THAT sort of waving. This sort!

Still working on getting the waves to look good. This one has some rocks too, and some splishy splashy bits. It totally rocks! there is a trick to getting a wave to looking three dimensional and I’m beginning to get it, I’ve got a bit more practice to go I think.  There is also a trick to not add in all the finicky detail cause it just confuses the eye, but adding in enough blobs to make it clear what’s going on.  I need to get some different blues too and practice with them. Water is rather interesting to learn how to paint. A lot of it is about the colours you put in the shadows to make it look like it’s opaque, and which bits to reflect.
