"A Strong Southerly Wind" by Carol Thompson

"On a grey Pacific Ocean day, 'a strong southerly wind' blows the top of a splashing wave into a misty spindrift."

Artist comment:  "This oil painting on stretched canvas depicts one such moment. I began with a quick sketch with a neutral grey oil mix, carefully choosing a pleasing design, and keeping in mind good balance, and the 'feel' of realism. Once I had decided on the overall grey color, I started painting at the top and worked methodically from top to bottom. My next choice was the dark green of the water, lightening it for the translucency. I worked the grey onto the surface of the water to indicate foam patterns. The finishing touch was white highlights and three 'M' birds to put an element of life in the picture."
