Mary, I'm afraid to admit that I'm confused here.   :confused:   :uglystupid2:

Is this your painting?  Or is this your practice with the photo editing?

Either way, you've done a fantastic job.

 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: Lillian!  Oh yes..definitely the photo editing...in fact, Adobe just offered me a job!   :2funny:  Thank you so much!

I can see the photo doesn't do the painting justice, you have done a great job with this painting Mary  :clap:
The sea sand effect and the foam and the shells, etc., are all very well executed.
Next time though leave yourself a bit more room between the foam and it's shadow. That will show more height in the water O0 What you can do now is to extend the existing shadows by fading them out slower. That will have the same effect O0

 :thankyou: you, Nolan...if it's well executed, it's because I'm studying under a master who's taught me everything I've learned!   :thankyou:

I think you did an awesome job, Mel...particularly your stones...I struggled a great deal with them but yours look as real as could be...maybe all you need for the foam is the little white wispy bits but I caution you...do NOT go by me...lol...I think you did great!  :clap:

Mel I give you kudos for doing this. I haven't done it yet. As far as I can see it does not look bad. Maybe the foam is to thick, or there needs to be more distance between the foam and shadow. Wait and see what Nolan says.
Give yourself a pat on the back. It will get better.  O0 O0 :clap: :clap:

Great job Mel, love the sand texture and the shells and stones.  :clap:

What is bothering you about the foam is not the amount, you do get times when there is a lot of foam, what is bothering is that there are none of the small fly out bits of foam, at the moment you have the large areas sorted, so just add the smaller bits in and it will look natural O0

It's very nice, now you can make it the perfect painting!   :congrats:
