Beach Bird

6 x 6 on hardboard

Today has been gloomy and rainy so I decided to paint this seagull on a sunny beach.  The day I took the reference photo there were hundred of these birds on the beach in Fairhope.  They were swarming around the beachgoers wanting the expected bread that they always feed them.  After I painted this I dropped it face down on the carpet so I have a little retouching to do tomorrow and some major spot removal for my carpet - Thalo Blue is tough to get out,  it's such a strong color but I love it!
