Sessions #21 & #22 - the big wave!

As summer approaches we are already dreaming of the great time on the seaside. For now, just walking on the beach and enjoying the sound of the rather big waves as they are breaking and mixing with the sand. And furthermore we are having fun with trying to translate this image into watercolor paintings.
As far as technique is concerned, we are working with wet-in-wet in the sky area (yellow ochre,crimson lake and cobalt blue) , we are learning to use masking fluid to save the whites of the paper to make the waves and foam, and color mixing (viridian and cobalt blue) to get the Mediterranean sea water colors. Work in progress so far, and only a few photos this time.
