"Sea With Ridges" by Carol Thompson

"The action of wind and waves created a 'sea with ridges' of foam on it's surface."

Artist comment:  "The ocean as observed from shore appears to do some unique and interesting things. On one occasion I noticed foam patterns building up in thick ridges as the surf rolled and tumbled. I thought that it was so cool that I wanted to paint it. I sketched in the composition and starting with the sky, I put in a grey blue, reserving that mix for foam. I mixed a dark blue for the background water; then lightened it with yellow for the deep green of the rest of the sea. I painted a soft green translucency (and a smaller one in front). Then I did the thick foam patterns and with white I finalized the scene with splashes and highlights."
