Art of the Day: Monday October 10, 2016

Dark Clouds Over The Sea

- by Carol Thompson

This week's theme: Cloudy Skies

Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not.


This week's planned Art of the Day was cancelled due to weather-related power and internet outages in coastal North Carolina. It is my hope that these clouds are a lot less ominous and do a lot less damage than Hurricane Matthew.

Art: Dark Clouds Over The Sea by Artist Carol Thompson

"The blue sky and sunlight disappear quickly as 'dark clouds over the sea' move inland with the promise of a stormy day ahead."

Artist comment:  "Grey is my favorite color!  When I have the opportunity to observe the grey storm clouds rise in the west over the ocean, I truly am thrilled.  The waves take on a deeper shade of green and traditional foam patterns give way to tossing ripples.  These are the elements that I kept in mind as I painted this oil on canvas.  I left just enough blue sky to reflect in the foreground to relieve the somberness of the approaching storm.  The highlights on the waves I brushed to the side to indicate a strong south wind whipping through!"
