Shorebreak Study

Shorebreak Study - SOLD
6"x6" Oil on canvas panel


I spent most of the evening putting on the final touches, and reworking the foreground a bit from what I had previously. To me it was a little one dimensional and flat. So I added some subtle chop that recedes into the face of the wave. Hopefully this adds a little more visual interest and helps lead your eye back into the focal point of the wave.

With that, I'm calling this one completed. This was a lot of fun to paint, and I'm looking forward to painting more of these. The next one I do is going to be a good bit larger. Somewhere around 10" x 20". I'm ready to take a break from the 6" x 6" for a while.

( This photo is a bit off from the original painting.  I'll replace the photo once I get a better shot. )
