Marina Syntelis from Greece is swiftly becoming one of the world's greatest hyper realistic wave painters and 'In the Storm II' is another Marina classic!
In Marina's words "The aim for this painting was to express the power of the wave. To me the sea is struggling to reach the sky. The background is ambiguous; it can be either of the two. The heavy waters let the light pass through as they move upwards. The waves will never stop reaching for the sky!"
The wave reaches a high crest driven by the wind of the storm, with laddered foam lines and rippples getting higher until the translucent crest topples over and rushes down to the trough below. You can just feel the energy in the painting and Marina takes you as close as you can be with a birds eye view of the water crashing around.
