Small trial run of John-John Florence, winner of Eddie Aikau Surf Meet in 2017.  This is the final version as far as I can see, but I hope to do a larger painting. 
This is only 8x10.

The waves look so real. One can feel the dynamics of the big wave! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 :thankyou: EVERYONE, for viewing my small, cropped big surf painting!  I did it as a ‘practice’ to see if I might be brave enough to try a larger painting in landscape style like this uncopyrighted reference photo.  I actually took the photo from off my large screen TV while watching the surf contest.
I will probably use a larger palette than the UMblue and phthalo green plus white that I used for the water on the little painting.  Maybe try a little cobalt blue and viridian green. We’ll see.
