The Ascent

The Ascent

I got the idea for this painting while watching waves perched from where these photos were actually taken. I watched a wave form from a tiny little lump in the water, build, curl and break, cutting through the water before it. I got caught up in creating a single wave that would encapsulate this idea, to capture that same motion of the wave as is it forms and breaks. I also wanted to create the illusion of depth like the ocean. I made a "sand bed" at the base of the piece and started to build on that. Air bubbles and swells embedded deep in the piece as shades of blue wash over it. A single strong wave cuts diagonally through the piece leaving white wisps of details in its wake. Photos don't really do the painting justice and am offering viewings for anyone interested in the piece.
