Art: Dry Time by Artist Carol Thompson

After feeding, a cormorant spreads its wings for a morning's dry time.

Artist comment:  A cormorant, with out-stretched wings, is one of my favorite subjects to paint.  Here at the edge of the sea, one stands in the sun, watchfully waiting for it's wings to dry.  I captured it with my camera, then in my studio later, I referenced that image to draw and paint this interesting bird.  I chose pastel and Canson Mi-Teintes paper for the painting.  I like the way the intense blackness of the bird stands out against the rippling water.  I completed water, rocks, and piling.  Then eagerly began the cormorant.  His beak and eye were the icing on the cake!
