Wasn't really any refs used aside from some general shots of water.

I'm not too happy with they sky, it seems a little weird. I originally used some cloud brushes, but they looked way too soft compared to the brushes used on most of the painting, so I just went over it with a hard brush. But bleh... it'll have to do. ;)

Been out on rough seas like this once... no fun!
Great painting, love those hard round or oval brush strokes. The splatter textures on top of the wave are a nice feature, however to my tastes those on the distant waves could've been scaled down to better contrast the closer ones... not that I'd be skilled enough to give advice to anyone. It's just a thought.

Thanks :) And you're right about the waves, I originally wasn't putting in the lighthouse so when I did I didn't really think about the perspective of the water until after it was all done ;p I need to work on that for sure. Thanks again!
