Handmade paper Seascape Painting Process continued

Crashing Waves (2010).  Handmade paper diptych, each panel 24 x 18.  2400.00.
I've always loved Renaissance art and the Diptych (two panel painting) is one of my favorite compositions.  In this painting, I have attempted asymmetry by having the waves plays off of one another-the waves on the left do not copy the waves on the right, but rather respond rhythmically to one another.

Now we’re making progress!  The addition of the greens which mimic the fauna of this environment push the composition forward.  I can see already that this composition will need colors added to it, i.e., artistic license, such as purples, reds and oranges, to boost the impact.  These colors will compliment the greens and browns replete in the painting.
