"Crash" by Carol Thompson


"With a large 'crash', an incoming wave hits an offshore rock."

Artist comment:  "With oil paint on canvas, I recreated a scene I had observed on a recent outing at the beach near Bandon, Oregon.  After watching wave after wave, suddenly, a magnificent wave crashed resoundingly upon a large rock.  I painted this scene later in my studio from my memory of the event.  I used oil on canvas, starting with a workable sketch, then rendering the sky, sea, and ripples.  I finished by painting the rock and the run-over and trickles.  The seagulls were the final accent to add 'life' to the scene."
