Incoming

TM9136 Incoming 30×30 oil on panel

I’ve painted a few waves, but I’m still learning. Incoming is all about the edge of the cresting wave, just before it begins to collapse. There’s transparency and a feeling of indecision – as though the wave weren’t sure when it should break, either. I want that in between moment. I think hesitation is universal. Details below. Enjoy.
