Sparkling Sea Dry Brush vs Light Sandpaper, with Watercolour Artist Wendy Parkyn

SPARKLING SEA

Sparkling Sea can be achieved in multiple ways, such as via Dry Brush (left image) or rubbing Fine Sandpaper across the dry painting (right image).

Steps and Waves. Produced with candle wax by Watercolour Artist Wendy Parkyn

STEPS

Steps can be seen in the white foam that builds up close to shore
Wendy refers to this foam as white sausages :)
Never add water to foam, it needs to be pure white
Foam can be achieved with Sand Paper, or with masking Fluid
Colbolt is a good colour to use for the shadows of foam
With Waves, look underneath the wave to see which way it’s coming.
