32 of 50 Paintings in 50 Days by Drew Brophy BEACH BOUNTY Nov 26 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.

This painting is #32 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


SIZE:  8″x 10″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Archival Canvas Board.

When I was a little boy living in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I’d leave the house early in the morning with my 5 gallon bucket, net and fishing pole.

I’d be gone all day, and come home with oysters, clams, crabs, shrimp, flounder.

Every day was Thanksgiving at the beach.

Today’s Painting is the 7th of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled THE HALIBUT HOLE,  9″ x 12″ on Canvas board, medium Paint Pens.

I’m having a lot of fun painting these every day.  Painting on a small canvas is helping me to create a simpler style.  Thanks to everyone who has been watching this process unfold.

I like the energy in this one!

The inspiration behind The Halibut Hole:

There’s a secret spot in San Clemente called The Halibut Hole.  Standup paddleboarders have been paddling out there and catching giant halibut.

The water was super clear today, it’s almost unfair, because you can see the halibut laying on the bottom, they’re so big.

Life is good in San Clemente!
