Re: Surf's Up

Personally, I think you need lines, though I just realized you don't ask for comments/critiques. So, I'll try to limit myself here, and simplay say, WOW!

Re: Surf's Up

interesting to compare the two

morning vs evening perhaps
pleasant power vs angry power perhaps
tidy vs messy, careful vs quick perhaps
inspired vs tired perhaps
or maybe the second is just more abstracted - i do quite enjoy the looming giant octopus on the right



no arguing in matters of taste, but the first version, imho, is far superior - the scallop shape within the wave, the wave reflection, the subtle descriptions of wet sand, the white, choppy flourishes of 'spray' [with hint of gull(s), perhaps], the subtle, but not to be missed rivulets lower left.
yeah, yummy.

Re: Surf's Up

Both are good. Technique wise, the first would get props. However, I’m always attracted to pieces where the energy is unleashed and there is less discipline. I find I keep revisiting the second one. Nice work.

Thanks for all the great comments and the side by side comparison. Sorry for responding so late.
