Step 8: How To Paint Reflections On The Water
With the size 8 brush, soften the edges where paint meets the white area for the sun’s reflection. You can add a few lines of paint into this area to suggest ripples, using more watered-down paint as you move towards the horizon line to create a sense of depth.
