Watercolour on Fontenay, 29x35 cm

Seascapes are one of my favourite objects in paintings. They are the most difficult and requiring a high level of mastery as well. After a number of attempts to at least remotely reflect the idea of a sea and its splashing waves, I must admit I still did not find a key from a door which leads to secrets of successful marinistic painting. This is one of my last exercises. I used masking and splashing techniques to create water effects. There are "spots"/areas I enjoy, but probably next time I would add more colours to the waves, as now on the whole painting looks a bit monochromatic...
