A quick little study of a wave, after an image from the RIL:

It always makes me chuckle when I read "quick", "little", "study" and then see a painting that I would have a hard time to paint even if I spent a week on it :D

Crashing waves are a so wonderful theme for painting, aren't they? I tried it just once so I don't feel competent to give you any advice :)

You've captured just the right movement in this wave. Try another, maybe a wave breaking off shore.

Squinting, and it takes me to the water! Nice little study.
