"Northern Star" by Carol Thompson

"The 'Northern Star' plies the waters of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.

Artist comment:  "I like to paint boats. I love the clean look and the contrast of rounded shapes and angular straight lines. Here the fishing vessel 'Northern Star' is heading toward Astoria, Oregon on the Columbia River, perhaps after an all-nighter of fishing out at sea. I painted this pastel on paper to capture the spontaneity of the moment. Starting with the sky, I worked the total background, leaving the boat for last. With a yellow-white, I painted the sunlit side, then with a light lavendar, the back and shadows. Next, I did the blues; the reds; and finally the blacks and dark browns. The colorful accents were added last.
