I'm embracing one of the symbols of summer this week. I really enjoy painting crashing waves and trying to capture the feeling of power in the water. It's fun to paint in any medium but painting it in watercolor is always a challenge because the whites have to be saved when working with only transparent watercolor. I used resist to save many of the whites and then worked wet into wet to get the softness of the spray and color blending in the wave. I like the graphic quality that the hard edges of the resist add to the painting.
