Thank you all for the encouraging comments - and for the beautiful images. I have another one: the crashing waves. Sorry for the splattering - my first attempt,
Wc on paper, 15*30cm, 1 hour
In order to make me look and not get carried away with what I think is there, I rotated the ref image by 180 degrees snd started painting. Towards the end I turned It back to normal and applied some touch-ups, the splatter(??) and added the persons. Just wanted to share this with you.
Thanks for looking and
