"Here Comes A Big One" by Carol Thompson

Here Comes A Big One

"As I watch the waves come in from my safe spot on the shore, I notice that every seventh wave appears larger than the rest.  'Here comes a big one'.  It is number seven."

Artist comment:  "This square canvas was a challenge.  I finally decided to focus on one major breaking swell, with translucency and roll-over.  The spindrift is blowing on an offshore breeze and the mood is exciting.  A wonderful day at the beach!  I sketched the design elements with gray oil, then began painting the sky and background water.  Next I rendered the dark green foreground, working toward the translucency.  When the dark paint was slightly 'set', I articulated the foam patterns, then finished with the spray and highlights."
