Waves

XPost from Marine Art.

This is a 3 feet by 5 feet studio painting I just finished. I've been working on this thing off and on since last August. Finally finished it!! These are waves along the local coast here in Northeast Florida. Oil on Canvas.

Thanks for looking.

Randy

Re: Waves

Having this on the wall would be like having beach front property. If it is a commission, I suspect that is what the owner had in mind. What a great window overlooking the sea. Gary

Re: Waves

Beautifully done Randy and at that size must looks just fabulous ....I can almost hear the waves lapping onto the sand. Great subtle movement happening in this piece as well.

Re: Waves

This is amazing! One can almost feel those waves lapping at the feet - I imagine IRL it is awe inspiring!

Re: Waves

Well that's stunning! It must have been very hard to keep up the momentum and it is so different from the works you usually post here. Do you prefer painting this way? I have a feeling perhaps not.

Just got back from a beach vacation on the Gulf Coast. You nailed it. Great job.

Re: Waves

A very beautiful painting Randy, for a moment it reminded me of the work of one of our old WetCanvas artists, he lives in Australia and paints detailed seascapes. His name is Martin Clarke and he lives and paints in Western Australia. He used to post comments a good while ago. He still has a web page up with his great paintings. You must be pleased the painting is now completed it really is wonderful, well done!

Masterful major work. Top notch seascape, very real without being overly dramatic. The color variations in the seawater are wonderful and depict the different depths as well. Inspiring.

Re: Waves

Hi Gary. While it wasn't originally intended as a commission when I began this painting, a collector and friend of mine saw it in it's beginning stages and asked me if he could be the first to see it when it was done. So I sent him a high resolution photo of it shortly after I posted it here. He loved it and agreed to the price, so it's sold!! Its new home will be above his fireplace at his condo near the beach!

Thanks, Rob!

Thank you, Jim!

Thank you, John!

Thank you, Ginny!

Thank you, CaliAnn!

Thank you, Bizzibee! I wanted to do something more realistic with this one, but you're right, I don't normally paint this way. I don't usually have the patience, which is partially why it took so long. I prefer working more on location, and while this might not be my "style" so to speak, I did enjoy the challenge of making a much larger, more "finished" painting.

Thank you, Kin3!!

Thank you, Caroline! I remember Martin's work and often commented on his paintings. His beautiful work of the beaches of West Oz (Western Australia) were always outstanding!!

Randy

Re: Waves

Wow Randy, this is so impressive. Don't go veering too much from that spontaneous charming style of yours, but this is a realistic stunner!

Very impressive work Randy! At this scale, I can only imagine how awesome this would be to see in person. The collector definitely has a piece to enjoy for years.....

Re: Waves

3 foot by 5 foot - that's quite a decent size. The masters touch with the painting to wow the viewer even more.
