Sea Rocks (in progress)

I started a painting of some rocks by the shoreline from a photo I took in Ogunquit, Maine. I have never done a painting like this before, of rocks partially covered with water. My plan is to finish up the rocks and then go in with the water at the end. It is an experiment.

I had an issue with my watercolor block because the glue came off and the I had to tape my paper down to a board (after I had already started the painting). I am disappointed because this is Arches and I have never had this happen with a premium brand. I sprayed the back of the paper with water and it stayed pretty well for the most part, but the paper does have more warping than normal.
