Post by: dirk123 on December 21, 2018, 12:31:58 PM

It's been some time since I posted. But I have done some painting.

This one is done with a palletknife.

greetings,

Dirk

Dirk,
Good to see you again.

Good job.  Interesting topic.

I think the water could use a few more dark spots and a few brighter whites to give it more contrast.  If you used a reference photo, check to see if there is more contrast.

Keep posting.

Good painting and the use of the pallet knife gives it the movement needed for the water.

 :heeha:   I think it's brilliant Dirk.  O0   Love the effect created of the light shimmers through the water to the swimmer as he/she rises.  :yippee:
