Ok, I have now finished the redo of the seascape. I like it much better! the wave had entirely too much white making it chalky. So I took out most of the white, reduced the size of the wave and added rocks for the wave to crash against. I think it strengthened the composition (always important for eye flow) and just made the painting more interesting to look at. You can see a big difference between the before and after photos. Enjoy!
