Seagulls and Driftwood


SEAGULLS & DRIFTWOOD 3 x 5 in.

One of the things I tried this summer while I was on my painting trip was working with different shapes and sizes. I wanted my little landscapes to have a different look and to challenge myself. This set of pictures I tried to do together but did end up finishing them on different days. The size, 3x5 did require a lot of initial planning as the horizon really had to be very high or very low. However once I got going things began to develop and I was very pleased with the results.
One side note, I did take a few reference pictures of seagulls flying with me which really helped in placing them in the picture. I am not fast enough to draw them in a plein air situation.

These turned out great. I am still not at the drawing board. Soon the garden will come to an end and I will have some energy to devote to art. First so I need to get new glasses. LOL

Nice work.
