"Golden Sunset" by Carol Thompson

"The sea is amazing to observe under a 'golden sunset'."

Artist comment:  "I was intrigued by the odd cloud formation as the sun went down over the sea. Was it just my perspective or were those clouds 'fanning' out? Never-the-less, it made an interesting oil painting on canvas. There was enough sun to light up a rising translucency and spillover. The foreground foam reflects the sky colors. I sketched the composition and positioned the major wave so the sun was behind it to 'light it up'. The foreground translucency was a result of the sun shining through the large wave. I painted from top to bottom of the canvas keeping the opposite colors in mind. The random foam patterns were fun to do."
