Monet - Boats Leaving the Harbor - Day2

Paint did not complete the look I was working toward so I stitched the waves to give them more movement. At first I hated the light thread but then found it to be more effective because the dark threads distracted my eye from the Monet style of brush strokes. The dark threads add dimension to the waves.

TIP: When painting with acrylic paint, use a light touch to allow the fabric to show through, giving the piece a translucent effect.
