Lesson 62 Water Ripples and Sparkles

This lesson was designed to experiment with various ways to depict water ripples and sun sparkles. We tried lifting, dry brush, scraping and using various brush strokes and mask. The idea was to let each person find a technique which worked well with his or her style. Here are a few of the larger exercises.

Carrie used large bold brush strokes to mimic the way she treated the clouds and hills.

Bev used a lifting technique to suggest ripples in the lower section.

Celine dragged a dry brush to create the skips behind the reeds which read as sun sparkles.

Jean worked with a combination of brush work, lifting and scraping to create a variety of water effects in her landscape.
