This is my first serious attempt at this type of ocean painting. I am pretty pleased with the ocean, but I think I am going to work on that dark cloud in the sky. It isn't sitting right with me somehow. Maybe I should stick to snow paintings. The closeup shows glare on the texture so it looks polka dotty, but it really isn't. This is the first time that I have used this textured board and I think I prefer the smooth surface. But for now, I am letting it rest and will get back to it later.
