"Red Sky At Night" by Carol Thompson

Red Sky At Night

"An old adage tells us 'red sky at night', sailor's delight, which is to indicate a nice day tomorrow.  In my experience, it is always true!"

Artist comment:  "I have always enjoyed a brilliant sunset on the ocean.  Colors can be vibrant and long lasting.  In this oil painting on canvas, I recaptured that exciting mood.  I have observed that when you see a strong color, the complementary color will be in the shadow areas.  It works well here to dramatize a sunset sea.  After sketching the composition with a high horizon, I painted the sky, the dark green waves and spillover.  Then I blended the translucencies.  The final step was to paint all the 'squiggly' foam patterns, (my favorite part of the scene!)."
