Day 1 and 2 - Wave Painting

A step by step, deep dive into painting waves realistically.

Students will learn to render spray, froth, backlight and all

fundamentals, tips and tricks of wave painting.


Day 3 - Tropical Scenes

The last day, we will delve into painting a lush, tropical scene.

(NOTE: You can elect to spend the last day on Waves).


It’s been said about Wade’s tropical paintings, “Wade Koniakowsky’s

focus is capturing Polynesian dreamscapes and the related emotional tie we have with far away lands. His vibe intersects with those same emotions–unspoiled, nirvana-esque landscapes,

islander portraits, and ephemeral visions that make you want to sell it all and travel.” - Jim Moriarty, President of the Surfrider Foundation.
