"Rain At The Horizon" by Carol Thompson

"Rain At The Horizon"

"'Rain at the horizon' sets the tone for this grey and black view of the sea."

Artist comment:  "My favorite times at the edge of the ocean are when it is rainy and windy and grey.  Here on the Northwest coast of Washington State, I am in my element frequently!  As the coastline recedes into the distance, the ancient volcanic rocks appear lighter, more misty.  In this oil painting on canvas, I sketched the composition in a 'reverse C' style.  I began at the sky with clouds and 'slanting rain'.  Then I painted the translucent wave in a complementary green for a touch of color and to emphasize the focal point.  Next I put in the headlands (the foreground rocks are done with a palette knife to articulate their ruggedness).  Lastly, I painted the foam and runoff with lighter tones of grey and pure white highlights."
