Perranuthnoe Wave

Movement and colours are terrific

No it doesn't look like muddy water - in fact I like this one rather better than your other wave painting, although both are good. I find painting the sea extremely difficult - people say trees must be hard work (and they are..) but I have nothing like the trouble with trees as I have with the sea, so I envy this.

You are really good at these waves Sophie.
