Study the surf and how ocean waves form with E. John Robinson's "Surf Watching for Seascape Painting" DVD. In full color and 45 minutes in length, it's intended for both absolute beginners and advanced painters in all mediums.
An essential study for all seascape artists whether you live by the sea or inland, this DVD includes:
- Part 1: Basic Waves
- Part 2: Foam and Foam Patterns
- Part 3: Rocks and Water Spills
- Part 4: Beaches, Headlands, and Driftwood

Stand on the shore with E. John as he explains how ocean waves are formed. Then, using slow motion and stop-action video, observe while E. John describes in detail how foaming waves break and spill upon the shore and rocks.
Note: The occasional freeze-frame and slow-motion are part of the DVD learning process of wave studying.
Descriptive narrative by E. John Robinson from the “Surf Watching” DVD:
"… we're going to show you these seas. We're going to show you waves both small and large, storm waves, foam patterns, rocks and their spills, sand, beaches, driftwood, and skies. We're going to put them all together because they are component parts to any seascape. You know, the ocean won't stand still for us and, unfortunately, it moves much too quickly to study very well. But electronically, on this DVD, you'll find that we have slowed it down for you; we've even stopped it here and there. With your DVD, you should be able to do the same - the idea here is we're not going to find exact and perfect seascapes, ready to paint; we're going to find component parts. You'll search, and you'll study, and you'll stop places and make sketches of them, think about them, and then put them together in a painting. The whole idea now is that this is a learning DVD. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it."
