June 24, 2010 - Day 318

Da Vinci watercolor and ink on
140lb Bockingford cold press watercolor paper

I think this painting turned out well. I really liked the way the water sparkled in my reference photo. I created the sparkles by scraping the dried paint with a craft knife. At first I just created small specks but then I accidentally created a larger white speck and it really looked good so I added more. The larger white specks really help to create the illusion of waves sparkling in the sunlight.
