"Rialto Beach" by Carol Thompson

Rialto Beach

"The morning sun dispels the remaining whisps of fog far down the coast of Washington at 'Rialto Beach'. twin rocks loom in grandeur as the sun-kissed surf gently washes upon grey, reflective sand. Have you seen such beauty as this? It awaits you at 'Rialto Beach'."

Artist comment:  "This is the second in a series of oil paintings of the winter season on the Pacific Ocean coastline of Washington, Oregon, and California.  I used a palette knife to show the rugged texture of the stack rocks at Shi Shi Beach on the Olympic Peninsula. When I visited the location with my family,  I was intrigued by the way the waves rolled up almost silvery blue-white onto the black sand of the beach.  As most of my seascapes, this oil is on stretched canvas.  As a traditionalist,  I like the feel and "bounce" of  stretched canvas, especially when I am using a palette knife.."
