"Cannon Beach Stroll" by Carol Thompson

Cannon Beach Stroll

"'It is morning at Cannon Beach, Oregon, U.S.A.  As fog lingers over the ocean, Haystack Rock looms large, as the tide slips out.  It is a peaceful time for a stroll along the waters edge, before the beginning of a busy day."

Artist comment:  "The Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon, is so very large, that people strolling along the seashore, seem to be miniatures from a doll house.  The only thing that can tame the huge monolith is the immensity of the cloud filled sky.  My technique is to employ warm against cool for drama, as I did with the color of the brown rock against the cold blue sky.  For balance I made the reflection of the rock weave across the water and wet sand in the foreground.  This scene is one I return to again and again.
