I Have been looking at pictures of ocean waves for two days and this is what I came up with.. I started this one after work today and just finished.. it is 10 in x 14in and I think its acrylic board. not sure as I just found this in my stack of paintable paper.

Waves are tough subject and I'm no expert on them. You might consider posting the painting in the Marine forum. I believe there are some helpful tutorials there as well.

You captured the sense of motion well. It does seem that the blue is a little too blue, particularly in the distance. Waves (and water in general) are hard to study with out relying on photos and good reference photos can be hard to find. If you have the opportunity to spend a day just staring at waves go do it. Keep painting! :)

I like the arc you are showing in that big wave.
I agree with Bill that you would get some great hints from the artists in the Marine Forum.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
