Can anyone give me tips on how to paint a lake with ripples. I'm trying to paint a fishing scene.

Hi.. are you painting from a reference - and if so, could you post it here? It is difficult to help you unless we can actually see the ripples you refer to. There are several ways to accomplish this..depending on a number of factors.... one such way of course, is to just leave some whites of your paper for the tops of the ripples..but, softening some of those edges afterward.
Hope to be able to help you ! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol
