"Last Rays Of Day" by Carol Thompson

"Last Rays Of Day"

"The huge Haystack Rock near Cannon Beach, Oregon, U.S.A., is silhouetted against a vivid explosion of color as the 'last rays of day' light up the sky.  It is awesome Nature at her best for beach walkers to enjoy."

Artist comment:  "This small watercolor on 140# hot-pressed high quality Arches watercolor paper, was one of the first in a series I did of the Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon.  I had been studying ocean sunsets, and this was a perfect opportunity to employ what I had learned.  I guess I went a little overboard with the vibrant colors, but that is how I remembered it.  And, it works because of the deep rich brown of the rocks.  The bright rays of sun were painted to act as a counterpoint to the shape of the haystack rock.  The brightest brights and the darkest darks are always the center of interest, which again draws your eye to the Haystack Rock.
