I will have some great deals on my smaller palm paintings like this at the ARTS IN THE PARK show, April 22 in Atlantic Beach, Florida.
The next step was to sketch the different rays sailing under the water, over the sandy bottom. I kept adding the white reflections of the water that make triangles and shapes on everything form the rays and sand. The shadows on the sand under each ray really helped with the feeling of depth. The last layer of course was painting over the entire paintings with the reflections of the sky on the top of the water along with little white highlights and sparkles.
