Work in progress. I'm using a highlight pass to paint in the whites instead of painting out the negative space.

Anyone have any decent sprays for particles? I want small particles coming off the seafoam.

still need to work on some details, but overall its starting to come together... Almost all watercolor, except for a few splashes of crayon in the waves, rocks and foam for bubbles and spray, shape.

Coming along really well. Great job.
One way I use to get a spray type effect, is to use the glitter tool, smallest size. Then use the eraser 3 or 4% pressure, then experiment with the width. Then thin down until you have the effect you are looking for.

Nice trick, worked perfectly! Thanks for the recommendation and help! I ended up using the glitter tool, then a knife with frosted spots.
