Re: Help to paint the sea foam!

Looks like you've got it down. Hit the right value and color for your foam
Follow your sense of color. Good job!

The foam on the wave looks good to me, are you talking about the foam in the foreground?

You can do a lot with a round bristle brush and tapping it onto the canvas if it's very fine clumps you're after.

Re: Help to paint the sea foam!

Dab with a sponge! It's what I do, and it works a treat. Use a coarse grain sponge, and a few values of blued grey.
The painting is looking very good too.

Marty C Thank you all for your comments and advices! About the sponge did't think, thanks!

Question, when you answer to someone, you must to copy the name, why does not work when only click on the name, so that it automatically appears in the window "Message".
