Big Wave Coogee, 104cm x 62cm, oil & acrylic on linen, 2016 sold

Many of my wave paintings like this one are based on photographs that I take with a small waterproof camera while swimming. This one makes the Coogee SLSC clubhouse appear to be threatened by a big wave. As I was making this painting a few weeks after I took the photo there was an intense low pressure system off the east coast of Sydney and big waves caused one of the clubhouse walls to collapse.
