Here is a link to a cool reference photo.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showphoto.php?photo=172242

You will have to make changes though. The crashing wave is not well located so you will have to bring it more into the painting. Also it is too small. The line of the wave is not graceful. There is too much white foam so remember what I said about casting the foreground into shadow. Also a foam line is running from left to right and enters the no-fly-zone. That has to be redesigned as well.
Good luck with this painting. See you next Saturday!

Or if you want you can try this one:

Add a crashing wave to it.

For those who have bought Johannes' set of photo references for landscape artists from NorthLight, in his collection of "Coastal Scenes" with several dozen paintable references with breaking surf out of 66 images. Best of these (in my opinion, and the one I am going to use for my homework) for the anatomy of shore breakers is DSCO1602_111.jpg; it is the seventeenth photo in the series of 66. Since, I believe that NorthLight has the copyright to distribute these now, I have not attached the image, but you can certainly find it easily on your computer. For those who have not bought Johannes' reference set, you are really missing something, these are a screaming bargain at $20. His photos are from all over North America. Check them out at: http://www.improvemypaintings.com/Reference%20Photos.html. You can download them to your computer right now and start painting. Stu

Jo, I was only able to attend the first hour of the class. I paint in oils so I am disappointed that I missed the oil demo. Could you please post a picture of oil painting you painted last Saturday? I have been so excited about the seascape course and I was so upset to miss this ! It could not be helped. I had a funeral to go to,

This is in oil on a 11x14 stretched canvas. For the thicker paint I used WN Oleopasto I picked up a couple of good pointers Jo. The blue used for reflected light on rocks and the blowing mist of the crashing wave. Good stuff. :clap: Forgot Jo, I recovered all your photos off my crashed computer.:thumbsup:

You do not have to do a new painting for homework. If you want you can submit an older painting you have done already. The idea is to have material for critiques.

My home work from Sat. I did a couple of wave paintings, and I like this one the best, 7 1/2x11. I had to use Chinese white for the foam.

Here is a seascape I did a few months ago - no rough sea here but I named it Reflections. I think maybe I could better those waves after watching this class - little less white foam with highlights on the main wave perhaps?

Now to paint a new one for this class!!

I like this one Donna. I had the opportunity to paint and learn the sea from Earl Daniels in the 60's and this reminds me so much of those years. I just love how you captured the foam and the action of the sea.

Jacdesusbielle..... Thank you so much! I see you're in France.... I live in N. Greece. The Aegean is my greatest influence and I learn so very much from her. What I love most about painting is that I am awakened to such deeper qualities in Nature that before I never noticed. Now while I'm in the car (not driving lol) I will become fixated on how the light is illuminating the trees.... or the waves on the sea..... or the rocks and blue-green waters...... what the shadows are doing..... reflected light, etc..... I think most painters go through this new and expanded sight. I very much appreciate your comments..... Have a lovely evening in your beautiful country!

I agree completely with you Vida. Painting make you see things differently, in an artistic way you had never think of before. I knew you were European but could not place a country on your name.... Now I know. Hope I'll be there in the chat next Saturday, but I'm not at home - so could not do the home work - and could not see the demo last class. I think you are very gifted. Love your last seascape painting. Can't wait to see the next one !

Waves are SO hard! I'm posting although I know it needs a re-do. The wave seems closer to the top of the picture than it actually is. It looks almost like it is in the 'no fly' zone.

I just couldn't stand looking at it knowing I had those cloned rocks, lol. I did manage to tone them down though. I was surprised this paper would let me. If it wasn't for Jo's lessons I would never had know what the problem was only that the painting was bothering me for some reason. I can still see things I don't like but can't seem to get my hand and my brain in sync. I keep fiddling with it!

Oil on Board, 9 x 12

Well.... in this one I decided to use much more paint than I normally do (I tend toward minimal paint) and to be looser. I like the composition much better here than the last one. Still, much to learn though...... water is sooooooo elusive and exciting to try and capture. Some really great stuff here everyone.

Marvel,
Good job getting rid of the clones. Now Jo can't get on your case and your picture looks great! Mine bothers me because it seems the wave is going one way and the water in foreground is flowing in the opposite direction, oh well. I'm hoping the water churning around the rocks makes it possible for that to happen, lol.

This is a watercolour (I think it was 16" x20") of a local scene I did a few years ago. There are some things I like about it but if I were painting it now I would do it quite differently. For example, I would try to get a softer look for the waves, different rocks, and more abstract/ less boring background trees!

18 x 24 oil on canvas. I used recommended reference photo. I cropped the bottom and added smaller rocks and water. Because it was a large canvas, I added a faint horizon line and sky. I modified and re-positioned the waves. I welcome your comments. I'm just getting back into painting after retiring.

OK, this is NOT finished. I worked until about 12:30 in the morning, but I am tired. I wish I had more time. I'll try to be better next week. I think I'm going to add a tree or something in the rocks in the lower right, because it is just TOO many rocks.
This is acrylic. I have been painting sporadically as a hobby for about 3 1/2 years.

And I was and am really confused about how a wave enter a painting..from left to right?? does that mean the curl facesright and is followd by its tail?? anyone??Polly, the wave can enter from anywhere. The idea is if you want a breaker as your focal point, you need to have the lighting correctly on it to show it off. If the light is to your back, the breaking foam on the front and top of the wave will be in bright sunlight; as it curls over, the shadow will be under the foam that blocks the sun. A backlighted wave (the sun is in front of you) will have light shining through the top of the wave where the water is thinnest, but the foam on front will be in shadow. Sidelit waves will be in between with light on one side, shadow on the other. Think of it like a portrait of a wave and how you want it lit. Check out Byron Pickering's downloadable video; it's only $17.95 and he gives you a good idea about how you paint a wave portrait. Here is the webpage: http://www.pickeringstudio.com/download.html. Another great resource for painting surf is E. John Robinson (deceased); his site has a downloadable video of surf off the coast of California that shows you a lot of how waves behave. Here is his website: http://www.ejohnrobinson.com/. Here is a link to the page with all his videos that are available through NorthLight: http://www.northlightshop.com/e-john-robinson. I hope this gives you a start. If you are a student in Johannes classes you can post a painting on his thread for critiques only and he will give you some brief input; here is the link: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=925972. I hope this answers some of your questions and gives you a headstart toward answering the rest. Stu

Yes thank you, all that was really helpful..i'm going to take all of your suggestions and hope for the best!
I have painted for years and taught but I seem to have blank spots in some areas, (maybe more than I was aware of)which is why these courses from Johannes are so helpful. again thanks for your feed back.

Thanks Kathy, I also thought that as waves go - this was a very wet one !! But I concentrated too much on the wave colours and forgot the melodic line and cloning !!!! Best Regards, Ray

Re-posting the revised homework after yesterday's class and the original so you can see the difference. While not a masterpiece I feel it is improved from the original. Will continue painting seascapes using Johannes teachings - have lots and lots of practice to do.

Enjoyed the class yesterday and also thank you Johannes for the additional time spent after the class officially finished.

I have had to miss the first two classes, so don't know what Jo had to say about any of them or if mine came under discussion. I'll have to wait until the course is for sale on Northlight.

As to your picture: I really liked it. You captured the light going through the tip of the wave perfectly and it is so life-like. I know I detected cloned rocks after finishing mine and had to go back and try to fix. Of course, I didn't hear what Jo had to say about melodic lines, but I know from previous courses that it is important. I'm not sure if mine were melodic or not.

LOL, we need to be clear here - for waves, it's a GRACEFUL line, not a melodic line - on both the tops and bottoms of the waves. Also make sure the shape of any wave or crashing foam is abstract - not symmetrical; no parallel traintracks or worms.

I am subscribed! Do not remember when it first happened but I stopped receiving notices from Wet Canvas in my e-mail!:confused:

I have no problems getting messages from GoToMeeting, Johannes etc
The problem I have is with WetCanvas notifications about replies on pages I have subscribed to...........
I am going to unsubscribing from everything. And resubscribe and see if that fixes the problem...........Dorian

Hi Rosemarie

I just wrote them another letter asking for help!
This is so irritating as you already know!
I am wondering how many other people have lost touch with Johannes's messages and more.......... :eek: Dorian

they had some issues with subscriptions.
I changed mine to subscribing to a whole forum and those are working for me (free) like landscapes etc..
so try subscribing to JV's whole forum vs threads??
