Floating is Finished
I probably could continue to work on the water forever, but I think it is time to put this one to rest. The areas of disturbed water and bubbles were the most challenging part. I learned a lot. First, I indented with a stylus making dots. Then I worked over these with small circular strokes to give the impression of foam and bubbles. I left small areas of white paper showing in addition to the indented dots and placed lines to indicate the movement of the water.
I did smooth the water with thinner and then work on top with color again. I also burnished with light blues and white.
