For my Breaking Wave IV with the Sandpipers in the ocean wave series of seascapes I have finished this original painting. The painting is 10 inch by 20 inch stretched canvas and can be purchased here by following this link Sandpiper Birds.
The first post of the start of this painting was on June 7, 2011 and can be found here http://studio.pjcookartist.com/2011/06/starting-ocean-wave-iv-new-painting-in.html . Then again on June 18 there was an update as the painting was progressing. As you can see in the photo I applied the paint quite heavy for the breaking wave by using a palette knife. The entire painting has texture from the type of canvas it is painted on. Below is a closeup of the 3 sandpiper birds running along the waters edge. By clicking on each photo a larger version of each image will appear if you would like to see it larger.
