Art: Sunglow by Artist Carol Thompson

"A narrow band of fog is beginning to settle over the ocean causing a 'sunglow' that lights up the late afternoon sea and towering cliffs."

Artist comment:  "Sunsets on the Pacific Northwest Coast of Washington and Oregon can be colorfully glorious.  I enjoy painting the warms and cools of such a scene.  After sketching the 'C' composition, I carefully laid in the areas of gold and orange, completing the translucencies of the waves at the same time.  Then I articulated the dark water in the foreground.  Next the rocks and headlands, completing them at once.  I painted the splashes and floating foam and runoff on the rocks.  Lastly, I put in the distant rock stacks, the highlights on the rocks, and definition on the trees."
