I love the feeling you get when you watch waves roll in. A wave is PURE energy and water the medium through which it travels. I try to capture this in my wave paintings by contrasting the flatness of the sea with the energy of the wave by using different brushstroke techniques for the relative calmness against the fluidity of the wave itself. I’m trying to convey the feeling not just of the surface of the ocean but also under the water.
Have you heard of the “golden spiral”? You see it in a snail and in a wave… and in so many different flora and fauna. I love trying to capture that.
