Creative Monday Challenge #23 - CRASHING SURF

The Creative Challenge from last week was to paint 'white water'. Crashing Surf began with wet paper and then white tissue paper was placed on top and random colors of yellow ochre, turquoise and ultra marine blue were painted all over, letting the paint soak through the tissue.

After everything was dry I removed the tissue paper to see all the great texture that was created as shown in the close up photo above. I then lightly sketched in the rocks and birds to paint and used negative painting sparingly to show the white water and spray.
