"Morning Breakers" by Carol Thompson

Morning Breakers

"'Morning breakers' roll in ahead of rising storm clouds;  the forerunner of a stormy day on the coast."

Artist comment:  "When morning sunlight hits the incoming waves on the coast of the Pacific Northwest, a wonderful emerald color brightens a normally grey sea.  I was fortunate to have been there to experience first hand this delightful scene.  Later in my studio, the oil painting on canvas was easy to render, as the vividness of the water was still with me.  After sketching in the design, I began painting the sky, keeping that same blue to later use to highlight the ripples on the water.  Working from top to bottom, I painted the waves and troughs.  Next I painted the tumbling splashes and foam patterns putting that 'sky' blue in the shadows of the foam.  I finished with a 'golden' white for all the lightest areas.  The dark headland, clouds, and waves were worked in and highlighted where necessary."
