Landwash update

 
I've blocked in more of the wave so it stretches across the canvas now, but there's still a lot of work to do yet.  I've been putting down the base colour for the ocean behind the wave and the wash in front then working darker details into those.

The sand/fine gravel is in place and will be defined using a spatter technique.  I hate this stage of a painting because nothing looks as it should, but it will start coming together, given time.

Dear Jeanette
Even though it is not completed, it is just beautiful! The curl of the waves are amazing. You have really captured the movement of the
ocean. Water has always been such a challenge for me.
I cannot wait to see the finished work.
Blessings,
Penny

Penny, thanks for your comments. I'm glad you like the progress so far. Water can be difficult, but its a bit like a puzzle, one piece at a time then you get there. Its not a quick process.

Thanks Lydie.
