Ocean Swells

“Ocean Swells” Working in a gradient of ocean teals and wave foam whites I worked in layers to build a see-through depth to this long ocean painting. I wanted to create a sense of an oncoming swell about to crash and a frenetic energy of a raucous sea. Soft wisps of pearly metallic pigment suspended in the air above the waves. Deep spots of teal convey the depth and the sprawling white waves make it so you can almost feel the spray on your skin.

What is Resin?

Resin is like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that once mixed, starts to harden within the hour.

I mix resin with various pigments and then work with a blowtorch and knife to paint these scenes.

Some paintings have up to 5 layers of resin, each taking 72 hours to fully cure. You can see through the layers like looking through glass or water. Once cured, it is brilliantly shiny like glass and also robustly durable like a countertop. Resin is so durable it is even used to make surfboards using similar processes as to how I create my paintings.
