I have recently switched from watercolor to acrylic. Kindly let me know what you think. Thank you for looking! http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/28-Mar-2018/116430-fullsizeoutput_ae5.jpeg

The water is fantastic. Very realistic looking.

If I was to look for something I think the sky could use more work. It seems a little bland. But it might take away from the water so.. dealers choice.

Colours are good - that white foam and breaking wave texture is beautiful - well done!

Not bad at all, the foreground looks very nice..loose impressionistic..
Maybe a bit more sky perspective/interest , a softer horizon line, some softer edges or curves on the wave top lines..

The perspective of distance in the sky & the water comes with time & study of the subjects.

sky is very realistic looking....waves are fine...foreground water is well painted....the only comment I can offer is the sharp contrast between the sky and water....I'd soften that area.....:thumbsup:

Lovely!
Great distance read and the colors are nice and well blended.
The waves and foam are very nice.
I think you are doing great on your change of medium.

Thank you so much, Dianna! I am loving acrylic so much more than watercolor.

This is wonderful. I love how you handled the foam and used it to create horizontal lines on the water surface. This is edging towards minimalism, and makes me think of the colours and spaces in terms of shape and pattern rather than "just" seeing water and sand and sky.

Thanks so much! I am always inspired by the ocean.

Thank you so much for this comment. Yours and all of these have made my day and inspire me to keep going.
