INSPIRATION: the insides of waves

Postby marcib » Sat Jan 02, 2010 1:13 pm

This first challenge is inspired by photos sent to the forum by Christine Bennetts.
Your challenge is to take any of the photos and use them as inspiration for a painting.

Feel free to post your painting when you are finished.. There is no time limit on this .... but also make sure to let us know which photo you chose and what the inspiration was .

This info was posted by Christine :
The Waves of Hawaii
Waimea Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography with appearances on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and many local news stations across the U.S. :)

Clark Little on Good Morning America (2009):

It all started in 2007 when Clark 's wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.

Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. ;cool;

" Clark 's view" is a unique view of the ocean that most will only
be able to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark 's photos. ;holysheep;

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel. ;pray;

Since the recent stir of Clark 's work, his images have been run
on the Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature's Best Photography, Paris Match (France), La Vie (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine, Surfer magazine, Surfer's Journal
as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.

These incredible images of waves in the Hawaiian Islands were taken by Clark Little, the number one photographer of surf.
He is dedicated to photographing the waves and has published a selection of his best images.

wow- these are some of the most fantastic photos I've ever seen. It really is true that colors appear different in other parts of the world. I have only lived in the Midwest so I am influenced by the colors reflected by the sun in my area. Thanks for the photos Linda

i just read the rules and see i can post my pice any time so here it is my wave inspired bowl. It's photographed rather well i think, it looks better than in reality, but i shouldn't really tell you that should i ;roflmao: ;roflmao: ;roflmao:
I made the mould first using castalot.
This is the prototype, i think I'll be doing s few more but possibly with bullseye glass or some slight variations in firing as the bit's on the edge don't look to be that well fused on
