WATERSCAPES (Notebook sketches)

WATERSCAPES (Notebook sketches)
The movement of waves across a wide panorama presents a unique challenge for the painter, especially in creating the illusion of movement and depth at the same time.  There's not a lot more to say about these small sketches except that I rather liked them, especially the bottom one.  Essentially they're finger exercises, but hey, even a little riff can give pleasure if done well.  Watercolor, 9x12 in.
