Wow, there's such depth and movement in those wonderfully orchestrated colors, I am quite befuddled when it comes to water's reflections. ^^; It's a beautiful picture. (I love the way you painted the foam on top of the waves as well.)

Thank you! apologies for the late reply.
When it comes to painting reflections etc i just focus on the individual colours rather than trying to create an image in the reflection. The foam was painted with a palette knife as you can get more texture out of the paint that way.
I'm glad you like it =)
