Morning Surf is 36×24″ and has a lot of modeling plaster, heavy paint and layers of thin glazes mixed with acrylic glazing medium. I wanted to keep this rather abstract.
Breaking Onshore is 24×24″ and has a bit less texture. This painting went through many stages and the underpainting was so abstract with some fresh blues and shapes that were pretty simple. I actually loved that stage and told myself to leave it alone. But no! I started messing with it and pretty soon it was more realistic with a lot more details and glazes. Still some simplicity remains.
“From the Shore” Sailing around the islands is a larger piece 48×36″. I was bodysurfing an noticed the colors of the water being an olive green with the top of the water reflecting the sky blues. Originally it was just the waves at a low angle. Then I decided to add some islands in the distance with sailboats. Making up a scene from an original inspiration is challenging.
All of these paintings are affordable so if you know anyone interested, have them contact me. Thanks.
