After messing around a little with Maya's create ocean tool, I rendered out a section.No lighting or anything just plain old ocean. Although changing the given material of the ocean to a more painterly style, the texture did not seem to change very much.
Took these into Photoshop and tried numerous attempts to add a painterly feel to them, importing them in as a sequence and applying set actions to save going into each frame individually.
Basic colour tweaks and a few stylize effects were added to try to further emphasise a painterly feel but the effect still seemed weak.
Numerous attempts to add life but also a painterly feel to the scene using Photoshop in the above example lead to complications. The foam layer on top was too random and in a sequence the movement was too quick and erratic.
