Study of Water Surface
Again trying and learning how to "get there" with fewer brush strokes. Another tricky thing I find is when to put down the wave shadows. Too early when the paper is still quite wet and it becumes blur, too late then it will leave sharp edges where you don't want it to be.
The painting looks a little too cool for my liking. In fact I tend to use cooler colours much more than warm colours, when painting the landscape. This makes the finished painting looking flat and somewhat monotonous. I need to learn to use my imagination to incorporate more warm tones in the picture, even in reality (or in photograph) it does'nt exist.
