Raging Surf

After Edgar Payne, one of the greatest landscape painters.  You can learn a lot by dissecting the work of masters. Line, composition, design…it's all there for the learning. So here I've learned  a lot about the big shapes and composition by doing this "sketch." Keeping it simple and getting to the essence, keeping the brushstrokes loose and still rendering the enormous power of the ocean. Please let me know what you think, this is a 14 x 18 oil on linen. Thanks for looking!

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
