I painted this on A4 water board which means no worries of stretching.


I tried it as a challenge to get a feel for the water and sense of movement. Still not quite got it so would try to get more of a feel of foam next time.

Nice try Paul!Great action painting. I'm not sure how to improve the feeling of foam, but to get the water splashing up the rocks effect, use a small sponge, and while the rocks are still damp wipe out some of the brown with a light upward sweeping action.I have a painting somewhere showing this effect( lesson by Arnold Lowrey)....will try to find it and post it.

your getting the hang of water but an idea would be to work a bit on faces ,body movement and the shapes of white water crafts . Nice work .
