the wave by summerfield

the wave

i have lost my mojo with photography and painting. lost as in i couldn't do anything right. i tried to paint on the weekend and i failed miserably and now i have three canvases that are fit to be retired in the trash bin. so i thought i'd paint something easy enough just to get me back in the groove. i'm not terribly disappointed with this one nor am i really happy about it either. i followed a tutorial in youtube. i could've searched for a figure of a surffer to include in it but i got lazy. work is putting a damper on my hobbies as it's been incredibly busy. tonight i finished at almost eight. who knows what tomorrow brings!

That surely doesn't look like failing. I don't know anyone who could paint such a beautiful wave.

Don't stress about it, I am sure it will come back. This one it stunning, love the color play, the blues in the wave .

What a great wave! I love the colors you used and how it goes from dark to light inside the wave. Hope works quiets down and you find your mojo again soon.

Whoa!!!! I know I would be well pleased if this were done by me. Congratulations!

I know about work getting in the way of hobbies, but darn it, it pays the bills... and hobby supplies

Great wave! It has nice colours and you can see the movement

I think you've captured the wave very well indeed.

Oh that's fab!!Al those tones of blue the action and it needs to hang on a wall FAV

It must be good to be busy when you are on your own! Don't know how you found the time to paint this - its utterly fabulous! fav

I would be ecstatic if I produced this and it certainly doesn’t need the addition of a surfer. Fav

I love this! Oh my you are working late these days. Take care of yourself!

Part of the beauty of this painting is its simplicity! I think it’s fantastic as it is but if you wanted to add something else you might put a little V-shaped bird silhouette or two in the sky. FAV

I would never have considered that a wave was an easy thing to paint, because I know how hard they are to photograph. There are so many tones to get right and you've done a great job.

@merrelyn - this one was rather easy as it's only a 10-minute exercise. meanwhile you have a photo of a wave that i'm ambitioning to paint but i have to study quite a bit so i can do it justice.

I absolutely love this wave. It doesn't need a surfer or anything else. You nailed it.

Keep going, girl, this is beautiful!

This is full of energy. In my humble opinion, it needs nothing else.
