I am gradually getting fascinated with painting waves, so you can expect to see more of them here. These two "balls" looked at if they were racing eachother, hence the title.

Zehr gut! A non fussy, foamy wave! This Saturday, I'm going to do stormy wave and rock in watercolor.

I also find it exciting, Carolyn. It's so much fun. This is my favourite so far.

Have fun painting this weekend - I am looking forward to seeing the results.

Liza, Your ocean series is just lovely. Makes me miss living by the ocean. This one really spoke to my heart.

I like the painterly brush strokes with this one...so enjoying this series, Liza.

Not too many good artists, but you definitely are one of them! Congradulations, I especially love your waves series. Rene sent me your feed. I also am painting the sea, very much. Ciao, Alberto

Thank you, Ruth and Marilyn! I am very pleased you like my series so much.
This one is actually still my favourite, because I am also happy with the loose brushwork.

What a nice compliment, Alberto. Thank you very much! I am a big fan of René's work and very pleased to have found yours now, too. Your seascapes are lovely, I especially like the panoramic views.
