Art: Pacific Predator by Artist Carol Thompson

Pacific Predator

On the calm water of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon, the fishing boat 'Pacific Predator' glides down river on its way out to sea.

Artist comment:  On a wonderful summer morning I took my camera and sketch pad to a spot on the river to observe passing boats to add to my series of paintings of the Astoria Waterfront.  This scene of a large fishing boat was a delight to paint with pastel on grey-toned Canson Mi-Teintes paper.  After painting the blue sky and water, I put in the distant headland.  I started the boat with greys, then proceeded with the rest of the details.  Finally, I put in the details of the windows, spars, lines, etc.  The reflection in the water was the finishing touch.
