"High Surf" by Carol Thompson

"A storm far out at sea has kicked up the waves sending a 'high surf' rushing toward shore."

Artist comment:  "I like to paint stormy ocean scenes.  On a stormy day when the horizon is nearly obscured by the rising waves, I gather reference infomration for my next paintings.  On a stretched canvas, I sketched the composition keeping in mind balance and design.  The 'Z' format leads the eye in a 'zig-zag' fashion from top to bottom.  I chose to paint the translucencies emerald green and then all the other tones would enhance that choice.  Beginning with sky and clouds, I reserved that color for the surface of the sea.  Secondly I put in the rocks with a palette knife, balanceing the headland and big rock with a rock formation in the left front.  After articulating the foam patterns, I painted the runoff and highlighted the tops of the splashes."
