When I think about the progress I’ve made in the past two months, there are a few things that standout out to me. First watching videos of other artists painting waves gave me some great tips (which I wrote about here.)
Second, one of the artists was using a flat brush so I bought a couple to try. The smaller flat brush has become invaluable to me.
Lastly, when I started using white gouache for the foam of the waves it was a turning point.

Creative thinking is great!
Mmm, your waves are very inspiring, Eileen! You’ve got me hankering to return to the subject in Acrylics now, though of course it’s a different game to watercolors!
Go for it! I’d love to see! 😀
