Action Sports Art White Water

WHITE WATER
 
When composing an action painting or portrait, I usually work from a number of different photos, combining elements that I like from each to create the composition that I'm looking for - the action from one photo, the facial expression from another, the lighting effect from a third, etc. Using today's technology makes planning a layout of a composition fun. I try different arrangements and combinations until I reach a desired effect and I catch myself smiling.
