"Cassandra Anne" by Carol Thompson

"The fishing vessel 'Cassandra Anne' plies the waters of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.”

Artist comment:  "What a beautiful boat! When I saw her on the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon, I knew I wanted to add her portrait to my repertoire. I shot a series of photographs as she sailed by, and in my studio later, I chose the one that best showed her gliding up the river. I am impressed by the color combination of blue, white and grey. Her floats and life ring and the glow and reflection of her lights adds a touch of warmth to the scene. On Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper, I sketched the general features of the 'Cassandra Anne'. Then referring to my notes and photos, I began with the sky, then painted the background water. At this point, dealing with the media of pastel, I needed to paint the subject before going any further. This was the best part. I love boats. So, it was a delight to paint the 'Cassandra Anne' in its entirety before going on to the foreground. Using a small straight edge I drew in the rigging. The red and orange and yellows finished the piece.
