Watching bulky waves rolling into shore, is a perfect pastime for me. These types of waves are fascinating, mesmerizing gifts that the ocean gives to passerby’s every day. Then when the sun hits these gorgeous thick waves just right a kaleidoscope display of beautiful colors and shadows appear – a showcase made-up of interesting forms, lines and sea-foam spray. I could sit and watch the action all day long.
Finally I was able to paint this type of wave in oil pastels (8×10) using an underpainting of soft pastels complete with an alcohol wash. It was a joy painting this scene – hope you enjoy!
