Surf's Up

Last December, the surf was up at Asilomar Beach just south of Monterey Bay. No surfing for me, but yes, a little photography. From one of those snaps, I did this h2o on 140lb.. cold press, rough watercolor paper. The rough texture was a good choice, allowing me to take an exacto knife and to scumble the full length of the blade across the paper to give the affect of looking through the ocean spray at those middle ground rocks. With the rough paper, the blade just hits the peaks of the paper, allowing the valleys to stay untouched.
