dreaming of the sea

I am still working out how best to define this series, so is it a series yet? I don't know. The last surf painting was in a rectangular format, this is a square. I really like the square format and can see multiples of these all lined up. We'll see. My challenge here was to keep the soft early morning light on the surf. I used a bit of sandpaper at the end to put some sparkles in the spray. That was kind of fun and kind of scary all at the same time.

Don't forget to visit my Daily Paintworks page to see what works I have available for purchase!

doesnt have to be the same shape to be a series, sometimes works better when they are different shapes/sizes

another one with great lighting :D

Interesting about the sand paper...I wonder if the effect that created is what made me think this was a colored pencil piece? Hmmm...It is a beauty of a water scene, Ann. I love the sunlight glancing off the water.
