"Must Be 30-footer" - repainted

4"x6" Oil

This painting was a previous post in acrylic, but I was not happy with the painting over time and decided to go over the entire painting with oils; I like the result much better now.    This is a winter scene on the North Shore of Oahu when the waves do reach 30 feet or more at times during that time of the year.  There were actually 4 people out on the rocks taking in the power and beauty of the surf when I took reference photographs of this scene.  Somehow two people seemed the perfect accent for this painting and to show the height of the wave in its proper scale or perspective.
