Haven't found a similar topic. I'm sure there's plenty of painters/artists on the forum willing to share their craft. I'll start:

Finished this a couple of days ago:

Liked that time lapse vid. Black, that pic does really remind me of those horrible long paddle-outs at godrevy when it gets big and stormy!

Longz - Cheers, I forgot to say how interesting the time lapse was - bet it took some doing to get it consistent & remembering not to block the view!

Waveslider - Yes that was a big day (didn't go in myself) although I didn't quite capture the scale that well.

I've a couple more up my sleeves sitting around here somewhere - may get them up here.

Ah good, more arty stuff again. LongZ does that red/white stripy board actually exist, as it appears a few times?

Here's a detail of an unfinished one of Perranporth although looking at it again it may well be finished! :lol:
