29th Break

29th Break

Lucky to get this one just to the left of the the 29th Jetty off the Galveston Island SeaWall.


  1. Really nice painting! I love the transparency of the wave thats breaking.

    I think this must be the hardest thing to paint, ever! I've never really tried, but water without the waves is hard enough! Yours looks great!

  2. Your capture so many moods and light conditions. Nice work!

  3. Painting moving waves has to be a challenge. Is it warm there this time of year?

  4. Hi Randall, your work is amazing! I especially like your Girls On The Beach series!
    Thanks for the kind words on my blog, to answer your question I shoot with a Canon 60D using the standard kit lens. I put together a GIF using Photoscape (a free download for windows). :)

    PS- Your paintings make me want to escape to the beach!

  5. Hi Wendy, thanks for the info, might try that one day. Yes it is challenging to paint moving waves. Stephanie, it was cold this morning but warming up some, 60deg right about now and sunshine all week. If the wind would stay calm for a while the water would clear up nicely.


  6. Your paintings are wonderful. You really capture the waves, surf, color... awesome work! Thanks for commenting on my little granddaughter on her sled... I've been photographing Lake Michigan the last couple of days and it is frigid, but water anywhere is so beautiful. Keep up the good work!
    p.s. I'm a plein air painter, too... the best way!

  7. Hi Randall,

    Many thanks for your message on my blog.
    Your work is very interested, i'll make a post about it in my blog and i'm sure readers of mine in south west of France will enjoy it.
    Watching waves is a real work...and i'm doing it a lot in surf !

    Best regards,
