I've painted a lot of beach scenes, but usually palm trees, still water, things that don't move.  This is one of the few times that I've tried painting waves plein air.  Obviously the challenge is the quick movement of the waves.  I blocked in one wave and tried to quickly paint it in even as it rolled back into the sea while I was painting.  I'd wait for the next wave and try to get the colors from there without changing the shape I'd just blocked in.  It was challenging, but actually kind of fun.  I think I'll try another next time we're at the beach.
