For my Breaking Wave IV in the ocean wave series I have continued painting on canvas with oil paint. The painting below is 10 inch by 20 inch stretched canvas.

In this stage I am working on the darks in the painting and when I finished that value I moved to the medium values in the water and the beach sand. I wanted texture for the beach sand so I dragged the loaded brush of oil paint across the canvas. In this painting I am working dark to light. Check back to see how I apply the light values and the details in this breaking wave oil painting.
