"Seeking Shelter" by Carol Thompson

Seeking Shelter

"As the sky darkens and waves begin to swell and rise, a group of seagulls can be seen 'seeking shelter' from an onslaught of wind and rain."

Artist comment:  "Painting the ocean and all it's mystery and awe is my avocation;  my passion;  my joy;  my career.  I have begun a series of stormy sea scenes for the fall/winter issue 2012 of 'Coast Explorer Magazine'.  This is the first in that series.  On a medium sized canvas (4' X 4'), I sketched the composition.  With oil paint, I mixed grey, a deep black, two greens and a muted white.  I began with the sky and foam shadows.  Next, I painted the rocks with palette knife.  I put in the birds, foam patterns, and lightest lights.  Finally I articulated the runoff on the rocks."

Original Oil Painting

"Seeking Shelter" is a 48" X 48" oil painting on stretched canvas.
