Thanks Sylvia. I just commented on Alanțs wave work saying that I tried to paint waves in 2010 and this was the result.  Now if you said you like it I am happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I have been trying to paint waves and sky and these are difficult for me to achieve and yours is beautiful. I am inspired to try again!

George you have all the essential colours there in your wave, as many forget to include green. Light not only reflects blue but also green in water too. This is sometimes why we say, what a beautiful turquoise sea.. 

I like this painting George for its movement and freshness. :))

You are right Alan; blue for a painter can be any of the blues: phtalocyan, Paris blue, indigo, cobalt, ultramarine, and so on. Becouse of this, the perception of a painting is highly subjective. Colours can create a calm or stormy mood by placing soft tones alongsideeach other or complementary strong tones. I used analogue cool hues to create drama and in the same time continuity.
