Plein Air- Wave

 watercolor on paper
  9 x 12
For Landscape Painting. Waterscapes.  I went and painted the pretty waves at the beach.  I used a camera to get a picture of a wave in motion and then I did the colors and shading from observation.  I am happy with the result.  
The humidity at the beach proved an interesting challenge.  I am used to my paints and paper drying pretty fast but while at the beach the paints and paper dried much slower.  I was also using more water on the paper because I wanted the wave and the water to blend smoothly.  
I plan on going back to this location in the morning to complete my other waterscape for this week.
