Big Wednesday

“Big Wednesday”, oil on canvas, two panels, @ 48″ x 120″, 1993.
This painting shows a cyclone swell at Manly in 1993. The swell came up from dead flat at dawn to 12-15′ by lunchtime. The only surfable spots on the northern beaches were Fairy Bower, the Queenscliff bommie, North Narra, North Av and South Palmy. This was before tow-surfing was invented.
The best part of this painting is the loving depiction of my trusty FZ750 at bottom left 😉
Contact Grant Forbes at Tigerfish in Torquay for details.

  3. Love that painting mate. Is there a larger image anywhere we can get a better look at?

    Done any giclee or poster prints of that image? Love it!

  4. Hi Murray,
    Thanx for your comments. No larger images available atm, the ones I have are a little blurry 🙁
    I got your email and I will let you know if we get some prints organised. The painting is 2000km away from me right now…
    Thanks again

  5. Just great Norval!! I really like that one, what about the stormy day at Kirra painting?? I hope it finished well, keep like that!!

    Hugs from the iberian land!

  6. Hi Norval,

    Amazing job!

    Have you done any printing of this image? I would be very interested in getting one, as well as one of the Storms over the Superbank.
