"Perseverance" by Carol Thompson

"'Perseverance' is the name of the game when fishing for a living out of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.”

Artist comment:  "This gorgeous blue craft is one of a fleet of fishing boats plying the waters near Astoria, Oregon. On Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, I sketched the composition with a neutral grey pastel stick, leaving the details for later. I painted the sky, then the water, creating ripples in the foreground (diminishing as I went back). Next I did the forested hills beyond the river. With bright blue, I painted the boat, put in the darks and finished with the lightest lights. For balance and interest, I added a marker buoy and a group of nearly submerged pilings..
