Tips for water texture

Postby rips10 » Wed Nov 07, 2007 12:30 pm

1)Water Dimonds are all over the water made by the wind.They are rounded at the bottom and pointed at the top.The end points are located on a concentric ring located around you.These water dimonds areas where you looking directly into the depths of the water.They are actually samall wave and you see only the section facing you with the ring angle of incidentce.
2)Sketch the serface gride in first,start with the flow movement lines showng directtion of the waves.Second the action lines.Any one of the action lines can be the leading edge of a wave.Select your waves positions and erase all the unnecessary lines before painting in water color.
3)Opposite to the land,water is usually darker in front of the object instead of darker behind it.Clouds can go either way depending on the clouds and suns position.
