Using a Small Amount of Texture

So sometimes less is more but adding a small amount of texture to your paintings can really enhance the final look. For this painting I used a small amount of texture in the white splash of waves – some of it was quite thick – to give the enhanced effect of the waves crashing. It turned out really well and I am now working on a smaller version.
