"Autumn Passage (Miki Miki)" by Carol Thompson

Autumn Passage - Miki Miki (pastel, prints on paper and canvas)

"In an 'autumn passage', the tugboat 'Miki Miki' wends her way home after a long day's labor guiding ships to the sea.

Artist comment:  "This large tugboat was built in 1960 by Albina Engine and Machine Works of Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.  My husband, Ed, and I observed and photographed her on the Columbia river near Astoria, Oregon.  In my studio, using the photo's for reference, I painted her with pastel on toned Mi-Teintes textured paper.  To try a different mood, I chose warm golds and browns with purple accents in the water and faraway hill.  The boat is it's true color and stands out against the background.  I painted the Astoria/Megler bridge as it is.  The Miki Miki dominates the scene.  I began her with the blacks and rust on the hull, then the whites, finishing up with the yellow and red accents.  I really like the way this painting worked out!
