He talks about reference lines and to some extent creating a box to draw the wave within. Easy to pick up step by step approach for the beginner right through to the more advanced artist.

Very similar to Pt 8/19 except this time Crow allows the artist to have a go at painting gentle ripples at the base of the shoreline as well as adding more detailing to the actual river bank.
