"Winter High Tide" by Carol Thompson
"The air is crisp and clear as a late afternoon
sun glints upon the waves crashing against an offshore rock. Though apparently
serene, there is an undercurrent of power in the beauty of a 'winter high
Artist comment: "In this small oil painting on stretched canvas, I show the true color
of the translucent water at the top of a rising wave about to break.
From my direct observations of the sea at the shorelines of the Pacific
Northwest, I have determined that the sunlight at different times of day
affect the colors of the water. This scene is just before sundown,
and as the sun sinks lower, the light shining through the top of
the waves appears as amber toned. The angle of light on the splashing
foam is accurately rendered to add to the feeling of late afternoon on
a rare sunny winter day."
