Thank you very much. The idea of using spray paint actually came from a good friend and painting partner. We used to paint together all the time. It helped both of us. She moved away and I really miss her.
Another good base canvas color for water paintings is a thin mix of turpentine and cad red medium. It makes the blue of the water just glow. As long as you make sure the base color is dry.

I am from the Jersey Shore. I moved to Michigan when I got married, but was raised in West Belmar and Spring Lake Heights.
What part of the Shore are you from?

Wow, I am going to try the cadmium red base color idea with my new oil I am painting!
We have a shore house in Margate, NJ. We live in Philly, but we go to Margate all year, love it there.

Let me know how you do with it. I found that tip in a "how to" oil paint book years ago, with a rocky shore scene to paint. It was just an experiment, but my daughter liked it enough to ask for it and it has been hanging in her living room ever since.
