"White Seascape (w/ rock)"   SOLD

private collection

One of my foamy seascapes.
Most people probably think of a solid surface when they think of texture. But water too has various textures... smooth and glassy, foamy and frothy, lightly rippled or choppy.

The sea itself has it's own personality; sometimes quiet and nearly still, sometimes playful, sometimes dark and angry... a sort of creature or being.

I love a churning sea, surging and retreating, frothy and white. It seems to be alive. Here I was looking to capture that playful energetic spirit. The foam sliding across the surface, dancing around the rock in undulating rhythms.13
