"Sunlit Sea" by Carol Thompson

Sunlit Sea

"Waves roll in and crash over rock and shore as the mid-day light creates the bluest blue you've ever seen."

Artist comment:  "I've painted the sea with oil paint hundreds of times in many moods.  Here the ocean is relatively calm in summer colors.  There is a misty quality that subdues harsh edges, giving the scene a tranquil look.  I used a 'reverse C' composition to offset the linear aspect of the water.  I painted blues first, then the browns, ending with the translucent wave, white rolling splash, then the foam patterns and runoff on the rocks."
