To be honest, those waves looked scary. But we later saw him on shore, so he evidently knew what he was doing.
I used a slightly different approach to this painting. Still using Prussian Blue and Alazarin Crimson, I used a colourshaper to apply the first lot of paint (some of which was left over from Sunsetting). I then dipped a brush in turpentine and swooshed the colour around enough to cover all of the white canvas. Before leaving it, I just had to add some white, and that was a job for a knife, with a bit of colourshaper surface-interference.
