Carol Thompson's oil seascapes are painted on stretched cotton or linen canvas using professional grade oil paints. The shape of the canvas varies from square, to long and narrow; from small (18" X 24") to large (36" X 48") to larger (48" X 120").   Her style is "classic traditional realism and luminism". From her notes and sketches, or more often from her memory, she creates a general composition that includes the dramatic elements of an active sea as observed from the shore.  Her subject is the Pacific Northwest coast of Washington and Oregon, since this is where she lives, and is most familiar with the many moods of the weather there, however, sometimes the Florida, California, or Hawaiian coastline will appear in a painting.   Carol is quite skilled at painting the illusion of distance. Standing before one of her paintings of a diminishing shoreline of rugged cliffs, you can "feel" the air refreshing your skin; "hear" the roar of the surf; and "taste" the unique salt that permeates the scene as far as the eye can see.   Carol Thompson is truly a master at capturing all that the ocean has to offer.
