Art: Lady Becky by Artist Carol Thompson

The 'Lady Becky' is moving gracefully up the Columbia River towards Astoria, Oregon.

Artist comment:  The 'Lady Becky' is a working boat.  On a sunny summer afternoon, I watched as she glided in from the Pacific ocean past my vantage point near Astoria, Oregon.  I photographed her, then in my studio, using the photographs as reference, I did this painting with soft pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper.  Starting with a detailed sketch, I painted the background trees and water.  I finished the setting, then went to work painting this beautiful boat.  I did the white first, then carefully painted in the accent reds, the black lines, and lettering and numbers.  Lastly I put in the rusty colors and browns, finishing with the spars, lines, windows, and blues.
