Surfer experiment

I'm always striving to improve as an artist. Lately, I've been watching some photoshop videos detailing the artist's process with the coloring and lighting, and trying to apply the techniques into my own work. For the lines of the surfer, I lowered the opacity so it would blend in easier with the color layer. Then I padlocked and duplicated the color layer, and gave it a dark blue overlay. I did this piece in two hours. While I'm not satisfied with water itself, I do like the splashes and the trails in it. It was an experiment with a different method, and I'm going to keep working with it.
