"Bethell's Beauties" by Carol Thompson

"There is a gasp of awe when Ray 'Bethell's Beauties' take to the sky."

Artist comment:  "Ray Bethell is a Canadian kite designer and flyer. He flies all three of these kites individually at the same time; one with each hand and one with his hips. When he set them up as a 'stack', also known as refueling, I saw the perfect composition. I used pastel on textured Canson Mi-Teintes paper. I began with the sky, having fun 'playing' with the whispy clouds. The kites were then painted from dark to light, finishing by carefully putting in the lines."
