The Mavericks, Half Moon Bay, CA

The Mavericks, watercolor & gouache on grey Canson paper
Every winter, big wave surfers test their mettle at the Mavericks Invitational Big Wave Surf Tournament at Pillar Point.  I painted the calmer surf in Half Moon Bay while just seven miles to the north, brave surfers took some wild rides that day.

Prepare to be awe-struck: see the Mavericks 2013 surfers in action here:
