A Simple Ocean Effect...
Step 5: Painting the Wake and WavesI use MODEL MASTER Flat White acrylic enamel for the waves and wake. I will later apply an acrylic clear gloss coat to shine up the white paint as well as the entire OEP surface.
The edges and tops of the waves and wake I paint with a solid white effect and I dry brush the white paint in the lower and less agitated areas of the waves. I find that it is best to keep a lot of the blue color of the water’s surface throughout the wake area and not go overboard (pardon the pun) with too much of the white waves and wake. It is the dark areas that allow the details of the white parts to pop out.
Sometimes I will add waves to the surface that existed before the ship created its own wake and waves.
