One thing I think is really tough to paint but never seem to practice enough are waves. Especially from life. This is the first time I've actually set up to specifically paint a wave. I've put the seashore in a lot of plein air paintings, but this is basically a "portrait" of a wave. Waves are tough because you basically are painting from life and memory at the same time. Meaning, you have to choose a specific point in the cycle of a wave, wait for it, paint as much as you can, memorize what you can of it, then wait for it again. It was fun to see so much color inside of the wave on even a gray day like this.
I wish I had another day to paint there but it started to rain on Sunday. I knew that a few people stayed to tough it out through the rain, but I had enough of the gray.
