Lovely job Teresa..... I'm struggling with acrylics at the moment... seem to be committing every mistake in the book and then some. Seeing this beautiful painting has encouraged me to keep trying. :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Linley and just think the cooler weather is coming which will make acrylics easier to handle.   :fight:
I was reading your blog about the strawberry painting and i don't gesso my canvases. I take them at their word that it is already primed, but i do have problems with the paints. One layer over another seems to sometimes try to lift off the one underneath  :confused:

Yep... that's exactly what happened to me.... YouTube suggests that if you add too much water to the paint it dilutes the binder the sticks the acrylic to the canvas. One experienced acrylic painter here in Tasmania says she thins her paint with a mixture of Clear Painting Medium, Retarder or Slow Medium and Unlocking Formula, one third of each, and puts it in her spray bottle instead of water. (She uses Atelier Interactive, like Nolan.) I haven't tried it yet. All these mediums are expensive to buy, even if they do last a long time. The acrylic would work thinned with water on paper because paper is absorbent. There is also something called Absorbent Ground put out by Golden. I've been wondered if it is similar to watercolour ground used to prime canvas so that you can paint watercolour on it. I must try the acrylic on paper trick you mentioned in the Strawberries post.  When I've painted acrylic on paper previously I've always gessoed the paper first.  :2funny:

Ok - now I’m really ready to return to Puerto Vallarta after painting this scene! I can tell I’m getting better painting with oils but know I’ve a lot more I learn. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated to make this better.  Thanks for a great lesson, Nolan!
Cheers,
Sharon

your wave looks lovely Sharon :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I would like to see more contrast between the front and back of the sea (the area behind the wave). The extra contrast will add extra depth / distance into the painting. Just remember for next time, it is too difficult the try and add that in now.
I also feel you can add more highlights to the three large rocks on the left. Compare the lovely highlights you have on the smaller ones to see what I mean O0

Thanks Val, Nolan, Teresa and Patricia!

Nolan - Here's the revision with more highlights on the left side stones. Hope this is what you meant. I'll remember about the darker waters when I attempt my next Seascape!

Patricia, as with Dennis and his watercolor classes, my improved skill is mostly due to Nolan and his great oil classes!! 
Cheers,
Sharon
