Stage 2-  laying out and blocking in colours- adding darker values to deep water to create depth and glazing different areas to create depth

Stage 3 -  adding white to the glazed areas and adding white to the deeper waters to create crests of waves and now to dry till I glaze it again

Stage 4-  Getting closer to completion - trying to complete the last details 

Works  photographed as they progress so far in 2022


This picture started out as a single canvas and the decision was  made to create a second panel  and the idea is based on both one single photograph and then combining ideas from a few different photos to create the image being sought 


At the moment I am working a about 5- 6 paintings  and all are at various degrees of completion.

This  painting is the subject of 2 ideas and 2 photos and I wanted the water draining back to the wave to pull the viewer into the painting


I have a combination of photos I have taken with the ripples in the sand as the tide is out and  I ilke how it almost  is abstracted
