Art: Clamming Under The Sun by Artist Carol Thompson

"A line of clam diggers spreads out on the shining beach as they seriously seek the tasty mollusk, while clamming under the sun."

Artist comment:  "In my series of pastel paintings of clamming on the Pacific northwest beaches, I had the unique opportunity to be there on a bright overcast day when the world seemed to turn to yellow-gold. The figures became black silhouettes against the glare. I sketched the scene as I remembered it, then using soft pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper, I began with the sky, then rendered the wet beach putting in the sun and it’s reflection as I painted. When I was satisfied with the colors, I carefully painted the stark black of the people and their reflections. A few dark dashes for accents and I was done!"
