Sun, sea 'n surf



This is my 'Homage' to surfers who keep the dream alive.
Particularly Tyler Warren who's art I'm also paying 'Homage' to.
I haven't made it to the water yet, but I have found the board I want!
Shopping is nearly as therapeutic as surfing, only joking, it's way better...
No really I am just messing...honestly
Anyway the board is a longboard, but not too long, it's eight ft.somethingorother.
A manageable length and an easy ride apparently and easy to paddle, easy to pop up on...
All round easy, that sounds perfect to me, oh and it's a soft yellow with a big flower motif.
Yep, that's the board for me, pretty perfect!

Beautiful work. I can never imagine myself on that board, hope you become a great one.

Thanks for your supporting comment on my blog too.

Nice homage and fab use of watercolour, especially on the water (all sounds a bit too energetic though...will stick to the shopping!)

I wish I could surf, it looks so fun...but I think I would be terrible! Love the foliage in the background and the color of the water!

Thanks everybody, the day I get back in the water will be a superfantastic day,like the badly drawn surfer in my illustration, I will look hilariously like a badly drawn walrus, in neoprene from head to toe:)
