MY COMMENTS:
The rocks have scanned a little darker than the painting. Should I have more contrast as far as lights on the rocks. How can I highlight to show some sunlight on them? I used heavy gel mixed with the browns for the rocks and applied the paint with a knife, so the rocks have texture that you can't see on the computer image.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
How is the compostition on this piece? How is the perspective? I really loved the water-foam when I took the photo of this. That is what I wanted to be the center of interest. I don't know how to make the water look more luminous.
The color that I am using for the water are cerulean blue deep, cobalt blue, hansa yellow light, paynes grey, titanium white, zinc white.

the theme of this includes a
recurrent mood of seafoam and backwash,
timed with the tide, memorable, magical.

a kind of emotion makes it important to paint.

if any question remains - the question should answered in terms of that emotional connection to the phenomenon.

already the painting has a great depth and conveys wonder and excitement.

So much turbulence I am afraid I'm going to fall in, in a good way:)
