"Fair Weather Sea" by Carol Thompson

"The last rays of sunshine glint on the top of a rising breaker at the edge of a 'fair weather sea'."

Artist comment:  "Seascapes have long been my forté.  I live near the shore to have easy access to my passion;  the ocean.  This scene is a composite of various waves and swells I have observed.  I sketched the scene with it in mind that the late day fog bank has formed on the horizon;  the tide is coming in;  and offshore rocks are being inundated by the swells, creating swirling foam paterns.  My style is to begin with a quick sketch to establish the lights and darks, as well as the compositional elements.  I began at the top of the canvas and worked on down.  The rocks were rendered with a palette knife."
