Drew was commissioned by North Shore Systems to paint a 36′ wall scene of Pipeline, one of Drew’s favorite surf spots on the North Shore of Hawaii. Heather Ritts, fellow San Clemente artist, is helping. It should take about 5 days to paint.
Preparation: Meeting with the owner & talking about what he wanted, then there was a series of sketches, and once the final sketch was approved, then the work on site began. Day 1: Prepping the wall (cleaning up any holes, smoothing out the surface, etc.) Day 2: Draw the grid on the wall and apply the background colors. Day 3: Check back for the next post! Here are photos of the first 2 days progression:
