"Ladies Looking For Clams" by Carol Thompson

"On a typical grey day on the North West coast of the Pacific Ocean, there can be seen a group of 'ladies looking for clams'."

Artist comment:  "This pastel painting on Canson Mi-teintes textured paper, is another in my 'clam digging' series.  My routine is to sketch the composition, taking care to create good design and balance.  I begin at the top, painting the background, sky, water, wave and beach, leaving the subject (and the reflections) blank.  When I am satisfied with color and value, I complete background details.  The 'icing on the cake' is the figures.  The bright garments and subtle reflections are carefully rendered.  Faces and hands are completed.  I give the painting a final check and then sign it!"
