Art: Seeking by Artist Carol Thompson

A seagull hovers in the bright sun as if 'seeking' a morsel from the depths.

Artist comment:  This pastel painting was done on Arches 140# hot pressed watercolor paper.  The smooth texture allowed me to render minute detail as well as being able to blend color to indicate rounded forms with ease.  I began with a sketch of the subject.  First I painted the entire sky, blending the blues from top to bottom.  Next I did the grays on wings and body.  The whites of wings and its head and beak were next, followed by the shadow on one wing.  Finally I put in its legs and feet;  checked it for overall balance and signed it.
