Art: Rebel Isle by Artist Carol Thompson

The boat, 'Rebel Isle', plies the waters of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.Artist comment: 

Painting working boats is one of my favorite things to do.  I love the contrast of curved and angular lines.  Here I captured a moment when the 'Rebel Isle' moved up the Columbia River, perhaps returning from a successful morning of fishing.  I sketched the composition on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper.  Then, beginning at the top, I worked the trees, then the flowing water of the river.  I painted the boat beginning with the whites, then the reds and oranges.  Lastly, I completed the blacks and bright orange balls, and the name in white.
