Just finished! The reference for this photo came from a stormy day at Fort Point.. I was watching the waves and wishing I had my camera, then realized I was holding my iPhone. Shot lots of waves but when I noticed the frothy water right next to the wall, that really caught my attention..
I had intended to paint this in color, but used an oil paint put out by Gamblin art materials once a year called "Torrit Grey" It's the color they mix together when they clean out all of their equipment from a year of making oil paint. So this is recycled sludge, so to speak.. Appropriate in many ways.
On a personal note, I notice that sometimes my life is reflected in the paintings I end up working on..
