Hey Kenny,
excellent technique and article, I book marked as I'm hoping to do this over the summer. One question, in the last stage, making the wakes. What and how are the blended into the water. Did you smooth them in and how does the brightness of the white blend in. Thanks..

Joe

Hey Joe,

I got back with my paints an blend them in to the surrounding colors. When making the wakes, I wet the brush with water to blend it into the base.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info Ken. I especially like the "splash" effects.
As we say in Florida, Go Gator!
