"Late Sunshine" by Carol Thompson

Late Sunshine

"The glow of late sunshine glances off the top of waves breaking on rugged rocks on the Northwest coast."

Artist comment:  "I paint with oils, the subjects with which I am familiar.  Here it is the coastal cliffs of the Pacific Northwest and the sea as it rolls in.  Looking southward from a safe vantage point, I studied the water rolling ever upon the rocks and running down in rivulets.  Each breaking wave left a myriad of foam patterns on the surface of the water.  I began with a sketch from memory.  Using a greyed blue, I created a pleasing design in a 'Z' composition.  I then painted the sky, background, and middle ground.  Setting blue aside temporarily, I painted (with a palette knife) the rugged cliffs and offshore rocks.  Lastly I painted the large area of foreground a dark green.  At the same time I also did the spillover and translucent area of the waves.  When the colors had 'set-up', I began making foam patterns with blue runoff on the rocks and the rolling foam.  The final highlights were rendered with a yellow/white for the foam and golden/yellow on the rocks.  The changing values of the headlands lend depth to the scene."
