"Starting Line (Palomar)" by Carol Thompson

Starting Line (Palomar)

"The tugboat Palomar, on Puget Sound in Olympia, Washington, U.S.A., heads for the 'starting line' to participate in the annual Labor Day weekend tugboat races."

Artist comment:  "I like to paint with 'soft' pastels.  The colors can be vibrant or muted.  Here I chose Canson Mi-Teintes paper as my substrate.  The texture 'grips' the color, yet allows for diffusion and ease of blending.  Some of the finer detail was rendered with colored pastel pencils.  As is my style, I love to explore the full range of colors, from warm to cool."
