Check Out This Excerpt From Down by the Sea with Brush and Pen by Claudia Nice

As the ocean rolls into the shallows, sending massive swells ashore, it creates an unending source of subject matter. In this explosive scene, the water roars and curls and kicks back into far-flung spray, while thick patches of foam hold fast to the bucking surf like a gathering of bull riders clinging to their raging mounts. It’s the rare artist who can view the antics of the surf and not long to explore it with a pencil, brush or pen. It doesn’t matter what medium you choose, the spirit of the sea can be expressed quite well with all of them.

Watercolor is my choice when I wish to portray sunlit surf, with a myriad of highlights dancing on its surface, and breakers that are so transparent at their crest that you can almost see through them. Nothing beats watercolor and the white of the paper for lending brightness to a scene.

Gouache, being opaque, is a more forgiving type of watercolor. It has a heavier look and lends itself well to stormy, brooding seascapes. I find it most useful in adding final specks of highlight and bright color to my watercolor scenes.
