Tropical water study, Acrylics, 8″ x 10″

Today I finished the piece I started yesterday, working on my water skills. I need to do more practice! It’s a good thing to do when my painting time is limited.

I really admire people who can paint from thin air (i.e. just their imagination). I find it soooo hard. It’s much easier for me to work with an image than to “wing it”.

This is tropical water, seen from above (probably a cliff or some high point), somewhere warm – where it would be awesome to be right now! Too bad the reef that I painted in the underpainting doesn’t show much, but I ended up painting a much broader view than I first planned, so it disappeared under all the swells.
