I painted this out at the ocean’s edge here on Kaua’i. I try to visit the ocean everyday, it is so powerful and energizing as well as breathtakingly beautiful. I enjoy watching the waves roll in. They are a difficult study as they don’t stand still for me to capture them like the trees and the mountains do. I try to take pictures in my mind so as to be able to translate them into my painting. If My mental picture doesn’t hold in my mind long enough to paint, I have to wait for another similar one to come along. The colors created by the light refraction in the wave are so fleeting. A picture taken with a camera can not do them justice. There are so many colors in shadows that the photograph will show as black, you have to catch the wave in your mind’s eye to truly do it any justice.

There is a time during the day usually somewhere between 4 and 6 pm that the light of the sun as it prepares to set illuminates the world in the most beautiful glow. It is often referred to by artists as the sweet light. This was the effect I was looking to capture with this painting.
