Fresh into the new year and I have completed – I think- another painting. This one was difficult, sitting on the easel for about 2 months before getting to this point. Of course things like Christmas and New Years got in the way, but this was also one of the first times I’ve really wanted to just abandon a piece and start over.
But I plowed through it and am somewhat satisfied with the results.
A part of the large landscapes series, this piece is sort of about a sense of inevitability. I tried to capture the aspects of the wave building, cresting, and crashing back down. I also painted the sky moody to keep the piece from looking like a vacation photo.
