Balcatta Senior High surfboard art workshops

I’ve been having a blast doing a surfboard painting workshop at Balcatta Senior High for the past 3 weeks. It’s for the Gifted and Talented Arts Program and I’m stoked with the progress these guys are making! How lucky are they to go to a school that offers these kinds of programs… the best we used to get was still-life painting and Lino cutting!

More Fieldey workshops are going to be coming to Sydney and Perth this year – if you’re interested in participating or want to suggest a location please contact me with the details.

Students preparing their boards for painting – we’re using second hand boards so they need a fair amount of cleaning.

This is one of my favourite boards and colour combos – clever use of the ol’ liquid soap effect

We have the coolest space to work in – lots of old tables, lots of walls to paint on and lots of space to get messy!

Shark love ~ Hawaii pinup style

Finished commission surfboard artwork

After three weeks in the making, this beautiful custom made and painted board is ready to be shipped to Karen in Florida! Karen contacted me via my website, asking if I could hand paint a surfboard for her. Working with my pals at Oceanline Surfboards here in Western Australia, we created this 6’8″ Funboard Egg with custom deck sprays and artwork. This baby is going to be queen of the waves!

Pictures of the whole process are below, but if you’re interested in having a board painted or getting a custom Fieldey inlay for a board you are having made, please either contact me or fill in the commissions form on my website.

Sketch for the commission artwork

It all starts with a sketch – the initial concept sketch I sent to Karen.

The painting begins – I’m using Molotow One4All inks for this

Clear coating the surfboard

Taking the board back to the shapers, we coat it in 2-pack clear coat to protect the artwork for surfing
