One more from the trip, painted from under the pier. Cold, wet, rainy and windy and damn if that surf wouldn’t hold still.Nothing will force you to see the big shapes like moving water. But it’s sort of like painting cows or sheep. One will come and go but there’s another one behind it that looks very similar. This is a 12″x24″ . I painted next to Jay and he did a 20×30 maybe that was killer. All grey sky with a little surf and beach at the bottom. Yummy. My challenge for this was to get the ocean down without turning it into a bunch of horizontal stripes. I forced the lines a bit in the foreground to give it some movement. I like this one. I feel it’s pretty succesful water, especially in the foreground foam. I hope I still feel that way in a month.
