‘Riding the Wave’ depicts the exhilarating freedom and action of a surfer duelling with the power and energy of an ocean wave. This experienced surfer is using a short board which makes for a faster ride with greater manoeuvrability. Digging deeper behind the image, the intention in this print is also to use surfing as a metaphor for living in the moment, seizing opportunities, taking risks and ultimately enjoying a period of success and good fortune.
This aquatint is drawn on a copper plate. It is printed on Somerset Velvet, an off-white heavyweight 300 gsm handmade paper.The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
