Tides

Tide 1

This is painting #59 of my 100 painting project and the beginning of a series within that project. This is the first painting in that series focusing on tides. I have mentioned here previously my obsession with photographing the water and waves every time we visit the ocean. So I decided to put that obsession to good use and do a series of small 6 x 6 inch paintings, each focusing on the surf. My intention is to then hang these as a grouping. I have no plans for any specific number of paintings, just to keep going until my obsession is satisfied.

I want to thank everyone for their interest in my Pear tutorial posts last week. I have been looking for your pear drawings, so if you have one to post please let me know! Here is one very successful pear from Freebird Drawing.

Beautiful job on this Ann. I also love watching the surf, the crashes, the splashes, and the rhythmic movements. A grouping would be so beautiful! I still haven't begun my pear.
