"Jellyfish Spinner" by Carol Thompson

"Kite makers and kite flyers never cease to amaze and awe their fans at festivals with unique and innovative designs such as this 'jellyfish spinner'."

Artist comment:  "A huge jellyfish kite was seen at a recent festival on the Long Beach peninsula of Washington State.  I am always looking for interesting kites to paint and this one 'fits the bill'.  I took numerous research photos and in my studio I sketched it on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper, to be painted with 'soft' pastels.  I painted the sky, blending dark into light, then beginning with yellow I did each 'tentacle' from back to front, paying attention to lights, darks, shadows, and details such as fabric creases.  A few white lines and voila!  A 'Jellyfish Spinner' in the sky!"
