Artist's Description

NOOSA FESTIVAL OF SURFING<br>

Captured live on location at LAGUNA BAY NOOSA HEADS depcting the surf festival , first point, competitors and tents.
The clouds and sky directly represent the changing face of the day from early morning storms to a rain free afternoon.<BR>

In the imagery we see a visual conversation starting with the lad in the foreground whose feined interest in the competion is distracted by the blonde in the blue bikini striding toward him, with her vision firmly locked on the paddle surf competitor, he hopes for the ‘accidental’ meeting.

Meanwhie the contestant riding the wave is looking directly toward the judges podium, as his mentor in blue stands directly in his vision portraying a stance of encouragement.<BR>

the body language of the three short board riders shows a moment of decision whereas the one closest to the waterline, is oblivious to the surf rescue board the one on the right is about to negotiate, and the one in the middle has already gauged a safe passage. All three walk with purpose and intent toward the cometitors arena.BR>

The flow of visual conversation forms a Z across the atrwork utilising the flags and the headland to contain the viewer and guide him/her to the event unfolding in the motif and the horizontal line of surfboards in the foreground directing the eye to the longboard in the bushes<BR>

Hope you all enjoy!!!!
