Another wave, this time a little with something to splash on.

Very nice rock. The wave is well done. I like the reflection in the wet sand/slack water. You might think of a few horizontal strokes in the wet sand/slack water area to lay the water down and cause the reflection to wiggle some.

Thank you all for the comments.

Good advice for the reflections, thanks Bob.

Very nice. Currently also working on wave painting. I like your touches of mint green in splash (hope my iPad is reading color right)

A good trick for wave splashes is to scrape some specks of a white pastel at the top of splash, cover with something like wax paper and then push into paper. Something to try in the future. Another idea from my teacher is that the pure white is only used on the wave or splash area that is the focal point. It really makes the focal point pop.

Lovely, love to go for a paddle there!

Thank you Pam. You are right, i used too much white everywhere. Definitely something to keep in mind next time.

Thank you Jen.

Nice, fresh painting! I like the color choices on the rocks, sand, and water- the reflective reads really well (it would help to gray it down a bit). Be wary of objects in center- you may enlarge one side of the splash to create variation, as it's equal on either side of the rock.

Excellent I also just love that rock! And your color choices for them just great!
I think you need some movement in the reflection and think about the equally divided splash maybe expand to one side just a bit?
