"TRLBY's Three" by Carol Thompson

TRLBY's Three

"A lone seagull is silent witness to a quiet practice session in which kite flyer Ed Thompson puts three glistening TRLBY kites through a series of circles and swoops.  The reflection on the wet sand speaks of the skill of the flyer of these 'TRLBY's Three'."

Artist comment:  "The TRLBY kite has become the most popular kite in the two-line, maneuverable stunt kite category.  My husband and I fly stacks of them (up to twenty in a row).  On a beautiful day, with a brisk breeze lofting the kites, I photographed these three warm toned kites as they rose and dove at the hands of a skilled kite flyer (my husband).  The cool sea was my backdrop.  In my studio, I chose the best composition, sketched the kites on primed stretched linen canvas, proceeded to paint with oil, and in a short while had the painting ready.
