"On The Waterfront" by Carol Thompson

"On The Waterfront"

"There is much seagull socializing 'on the waterfront' in Ilwaco, Washington.”

Artist comment:  "In this pastel painting on Canson Mi-Teintes paper, I wanted to capture the activity of the ever present seagulls.  Can you almost hear the raucous call of the young one as the others concentrate on looking for food?  I sketched the composition as I saw it, with boats at peaceful rest in the early morning sunshine.  The gulls were just a few of the many who were looking for breakfast.  With soft pastel, I painted the water, walkway, and grasses.  The boats were next with their ripply reflections (the red stripe is an interesting counterpoint to all the cool colors).  Finally, I did the gulls with all the rich sunlight and shadows with reflected light on their bellies."
