09 Nov 50 Paintings Day 15 of 50 – NAZARE
You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.
This painting is #15 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.
SIZE: 9″x 12″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.
Rarely do I ever paint from a photo, but today’s painting was inspired by a shot of Garrett McNamara surfing a huge wave at Nazare. I’m fascinated by the immensity of this wave.
In my painting, it looks like I exaggerated the size of the wave, but I didn’t.
Nazare is a big wave surf spot in Portugal. Last week Garrett slayed that wave; it may well be one of the biggest waves ever ridden.
I’ve surfed with Garrett over the years. We are about the same age, and he inspires me to know that like him, I can still push the limits of riding big waves, too.
This painting study is
available for purchase SOLD to Michael Gates of NJ. It’s his first original of my art. Thanks Michael!
