Art: Chinook Pilot Boat by Artist Carol Thompson

The Chinook, a pilot boat on the Columbia River Bar, seems to glow in the sunlight as she skims the Columbia River near Warrenton, Oregon.

Artist comment:  I love painting boats - of all kinds - but mostly working boats.  This sleek yellow pilot boat is a departure from my typical tug boat or fishing boat subject matter.  I couldn't resist her sleek lines and strong character.  The yellow/white against grey/blue water and sky was a fun challenge.  I began with a line drawing sketch to include the Astoria Megler bridge.  This is a pastel painting on canson Mi-Teintes paper using a variety of soft pastels to include Rembrandt, Schminke, and Maimeri.
