I am brushing up on my water painting skills. I have this commission that requires a water scene that I basically have to make up. This is a scene I created in my head as a warm up for the rough sketch below.
The commission requires three guys swimming across the Mississippi. I needed to convey the sense of distance. The bridge is blocked in on the left; which after looking at it seems out of perspective. The waves will also have to be adjusted to gradually transision from large to small. I may have to go plein air painting to get a better grasp of the details.
