Given 2008-10-21
The expressive and sweeping arcs of surf day really pull together a colorful composition. ~jwmiller is a master of expression and portraying vibrant personalities through muted palettes. ( Suggested by M-A-D-art and Featured by oilsoaked )

This is fantastic! I'm happy to finally see a painting that has a different style than just flat out realistic.

With the sea so green, I almost thought he was surfing on someone's lawn. :bucktooth:

Not a complaint, I think this is great, a very hard pose to try to draw well, not to mention the water looks great.
I just failed at seeing it as water at first. ^^;

nice work, this is a a great featured piece. I like the yellow light shining on him and the green tinge of the waves with the dim sky behind him. It gives a strong sense of time of day without being to obvious.

Fantastic brush strokes and texture. I love the character too, he's so chill and relaxed, it really evokes a feeling of control and confidence. I'll definitely be looking at the rest of your gallery!
