Glitters

My first attempt at sparkling ocean. 16 by 20 by oil on canvas. I made exactly 472 dots

Re: Glitters

Forgive the newbie ignorance - dots? Literally light (whitish) dots on the canvas that create the impression of sparkle?

Re: Glitters

Thank you Jim and Doug for you kind comments.
tmwilliams, yes dots to create light effect. Some with brush, some done with knife.

I'd say you nailed it Alex - you certainly got the sparkle effect there. Very nice

Re: Glitters

Thank you Eric!
And thank you twice Dave! Sorry, I for some reason thought it was Jim's post. My eyes were playing tricks on me after all that glitter. Can't wait to see your 473 sparkles ship painting. I will have my magnifying glass ready )
