The Wave



I stood in front of the 24x36 inch canvas trying to visualize what masterpiece would reveal itself. First up was a great looking sky but what to paint under it, an open field, or ocean waves during a storm? These attempts were soon wiped clean. Then an inspiration and my brush went on to paint the curl of a wave.

ultra marine blue, Phthalo Blue, Phthalo Green, white, and raw umber were used.

Will, I didn't like the way the wave story ended so I tried my best to screw-up the one I had, and after several tries I finally found what was missing and added it - such as the waves in the foreground and the wall of water to the right - all is not perfect but I'll leave it alone.
