The water is darker on the horizon and lightens as it comes forward. So after the initial brushing in, we went back over the water line and blended it into the clouds so there was no hard edge. We are using the same colours - Ultramarine Blue and Red Light. Leave gaps of canvas where the sun is shining through on the water for our oranges. When you blend in your oranges, make sure you have a clean brush and brush from the middle out, avoiding the purple water. Then you can lightly blend in the orange when you have finished. If it goes a bit green don't worry, we'll have to go over it all with waves etc anyway.
