Crashing Waves


This painting of crashing waves will be the lesson for next weeks class at Riverside Arts Center.  It is from the EmptyEasel.com web site - from a tutorial on painting moving water. 

This painting is 5 inches by 9 inches and is a mixed media piece which also incorporated white crayon in watercolor crayon resist.  It is painted on 140 lb. Canson cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I like the composition of this painting. The waves do look like they are moving.

So do I Sherry - I have always loved that combination of related colors.

J.L. - Since I used a tutorial for this project from EmptyEasel.com - I can't take credit for the composition - only the way it was painted. I don't normally do this since I like to do the creative process from beginning to end, but I was in a hurry to do this. I do think that it turned out well, though.
