When I use sponges, it seems so obvious. I can't tell at all where you used yours, so color me impressed! As usual, I love your colors, especially the foreground pebbles.

Thanx all for your comments.....the pebbles and foam took a while to do, I probably could have spent a lot more time on this. I still have a lot more to learn about water......and waves. Yours comments motivate me to keep on painting...Gracias..............TJ

Great waves. When I draw the sea I always get end up with a mess.

For sure keep on painting water and waves Tony. You are doing so well. Love the colours in those pebbles and the water looks great.

Thanx for the comments! I'm glad some of you noticed the pebbles, I had fun with those, and lots of time involved too. Sponge was used for foamy part of waves, even though you can't really notice a "spongy" feel, it worked for me to get that effect. I've been noticing the relationship between clouds and waves, almost the same feel while painting them. Gracias..........TJ
