I’ve been interested in waves and the ocean as part of the larger landscape series. It feels like a good fit with some of the emotional content behind the work. A few weeks back I took a trip to the beach that was sunless and windy – but provided some great reference shots!
I’ve started working up some ideas for sketches – the first is below. Despite the day being cool and grey the painting still came out a little sunny… I’ll need to work on that in the future.
