Sailing at Sunset

"Distant Sail at Sunset" was completed on Easter Sunday and is 30x15x1.5". I am exploring the theme of water, waves and ocean tides for the last three months and plan on continuing with this theme for a while. There is also a tryptich that is 90x40" of ocean waves that I have been struggling with for a month. Water, being translucent is more difficult than I expected when starting in on this theme. There are so many variables and tints that are necessary to create the fluid feel as well as the power of the waves. Growing up around the Pacific ocean, sailing and swimming, I have an intense respect for the oceans.
