"Choppy Sea" by Carol Thompson

"Foam patterns define the surface of a 'choppy sea'."

Artist comment:  "This square painting shows a glimpse of a day when winds kick up the surf and foam forms on the surface of the sea near a sandy northwest Washington beach. I painted the subject with oil paint, starting with a quick sketch in a neutral grey tone. I then began with the sky (saving the same blue for the bottom of the canvas). Next I painted the dark green water from horizon to foregraound. Then I put in the translucencies keeping in mind the 'zig-zag' rhythm of the composition. Finally I 'rolled' in the splashing foam with its bright sunlit white highlights."
