"Blue On Blue Octopus" by Carol Thompson

"Upon a clear, cloudless sky, this kite is a 'blue-on-blue' octopus that delights the crowds of spectators at the kite festival in Long Beach, Washington."

Artist comment:  "It is not easy to paint an all blue piece and have it come off with strength and value. So, I met the challenge with several values of blues accented by complementary orange with black and white accents. I used soft pastel sticks on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper. I arranged the composition so it had 'movement'. The rest was just a matter of applying the paint."
