Wave Tripping

"Wave Tripping"  (oil, 6x6 inches)  click here to bid

This one was fun to paint. When I enhanced the colors of the photo in Photoshop, it was surprising how much red came out in the waves. But when I painted them, it somehow worked. Water, after all, is clear, and will reflect any light that surrounds it.

Below is the original photo, the first crop, image reversed, and the final composition with color enhancement.
