"Dawn Return" by Carol Thompson

"The 'dawn return' of the sea going vessel 'Ocean Angel' signifies a successful night of fishing.

Artist comment:  "As the sun brightened the sky, I watched with sketch pad and camera at the ready as boats moved up and down the Columbia river at Ilwaco, Washington. Here I have depicted the 'Ocean Angel' as she made her way home, laden with her cargo. With pastel on Mi-teintes grey-toned paper, I sketched the elements; keeping in mind good balance and a pleasing composition. Beginning with the sky, I painted the pink, yellow, and blue of the morning light. The next step was the background headland diminishing into the distance. I started the boat, working from light to dark. The lines and pulleys, windows and nets were carefully articulated. A final touch of blue and the painting was complete.”
