Painting - Watercolor On Arches 300# Cold Press Paper
Title: Breathtaking Kai Mana
As a body surfer who doesn't live near the ocean, I wanted to capture that moment of exhilaration when the wave is perfect to launch into and ride to shore. This is it for me. The artwork is a large watercolor painting. The original is 41" x 29" and will make a great print on the surface or product of your choice. The art is professionally photographed which will make reproductions impossible to discern from the original painting other than the deckle edge of the painting which is part of the original art.
I've been painting flowers for over a decade and this is my first venture into painting the ocean, a dynamic subject. I still like the close up composition so the viewer can get lost in the inner details instead of the placement of the subject in its surrounding space. Enjoy the energy of this painting!
I wrote a blog post about this painting you can see at: https://sandyhaightfineart.com/whoa-2020-what-a-wild-ride/
For the past dozen years I've been painting flowers up so close that they envelope the viewer in their sensuality and rich color. I call these paintings Floralscapes as they feel like a landscape of bloom that the viewer can get lost deep within. These Floralscapes, Watercolor Life Drawings and Sumi paintings can be seen on my fine art web site at http://www.sandyhaightfineart.com.
I was honored to win the gold prize as poster artist for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in 2016 with my watercolor painting of a tulip bouquet.
In 2012 I qualified to be a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS). This is earned by being juried into a select number of local chapter and international watercolor society shows sponsored by NWWS. The initials now follow my signature in recent paintings.
