Another “Rocks & Surf” painting. I like this subject because it allows me to push my brush strokes within forms that are free-flowing (water) and solid (rocks). Also, like painting clouds, it’s easy to move things around for the sake of composition without having to worry about perspective, size, etc.

  1. I see so much majesty in the waves . Each brush stroke represents each turn of the surf. The way you captured the cool, foamy froth of the water is so beautifully seen.

    I really love your work and view it to teach myself how to be more brave.
    And see better.

  2. Love the bold brush work Ed. The strong colour and simplicity of composition work wonderfully in this piece. This would be great in a large format as well.


  3. I think you are on to something with this kind of painting, Ed. There is so much vitality and energy in the strokes and in your color choices. This piece is positively stimulating!
    Way to go!

  4. Ed, I really love this one.. FanTaStiCK! You’ve really got such an immediate feel with the brushwork and especially the colour.. very nice! The very colourful hit of greenish colour in the forground shadow surf are a treat.
