Sky, Water and Waves Demonstration

This is the demonstration I did for class today. We talked about cloud shapes, how this cloud was backlit and how the water color is a bounce off the sky. We also talked about calm water and rippled water and how the colors reflect off the angles of the ripples/waves. We looked at many examples and it was good to observe and learn the form/shape of things and how the light sits on the shapes.

and here is a small 5x8 inch demo I did of waves.

This was a wonderful demonstration, Maria. I really love the back-lit cloud and the (what did Kim call them...God-rays?) God-rays to the water from the cloud. The water looks very realistic, and I do like the inlet you created at the treeline, rather than having a single horizontal shoreline. It's beautiful! Now I need to try this again.
