Owen helped me paint the water.
Once we had the landscape painted, I used a round potato stamp to make the bokeh dots. I stamped off most of the paint before painting it on the canvas and then used a wet brush over the dots to make them more translucent.
Overall it ended up being pretty close to what I wanted. It's kind of an out-of-focus version of those photos I love. I think the sky needs to be more solid, so I may paint over that part using just one color and see how that looks. I'm also trying to decide if the bokeh dots should have been bigger. I will re-post pictures when I get it just right!
