List management becomes very important with any painting that contains more th than five floaters. Almost everyone can remember 5 things but add a 6 and loss of time begins to mount up when we select the wrong floater to work on. Do this 15 or 20 times and you can see how it would be easy to lose and hour of valuable production time on any large project. I try to make it easy for myself by naming all floaters or layers. When I do this I also developed the habit of pressingCtrl +Sto save my work. At first it wasn’t easy because I was so caught up in my painting.

Paint in a row of water at a slight diagonal. Change theGrainslider to40%and paint in some more strokes. Change theGrainslider to25%and paint the rest. If you see blatant areas that look funny adjust the grain slider between25%and 40%, and add more water to cover that area. It is difficult to say use this or that setting because it is impossible for each of us to add paint in exactly the same way. You should have something that looks similar to this (15).

Leave theToSelectionbox unchecked because we want to add more rocks to cover the ones we already have.
