    Wow, I’m completely impressed. A teenager, and someone who’s just discovered her own passion for painting, I am awed by the beauty of this piece, especially the waves and rocks. Any tips for one just starting out? 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind comment Madelaine, and for visiting my blog. I use liquid masking to keep the whites and then layer the colors. But more than technic with colors, when painting water, I always say to allow your hand and brush to dance with each other, a controlled dance, but with fluid motion. I know it sounds artsy-fartsy as my family would say, and I’m not, but it’s the best way to describe it, with out showing you. Maybe someday I’ll do some videos and post them. Good luck and keep practicing!
