How to paint the sea?

I apologize for such a sudden (and incomplete post) ...but how do you paint the sea? I've been using reference for the sea in this picture (only the left half) and I still can't get it too look good - I know the reflection isn't in - but I want to leave that till last, any ideas, tips?
