Sunset Session, Silver Strand Beach
From a surfer's point of view riding an eight foot hollow wave inspired me to paint Sunset Session, Silver Strand Beach, 50”x60”. With the surface of the water sparkling with yellow, orange, and red sunlight, it makes tube riding a surreal experience. The whole wave painting is constructed of paint brush marks 3/4 of an inch long and ⅛ of an inch wide.
One third of the oil painting is complete. A variety of blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow colors are used to develop the shading, form, and motion of the wave.
