It seems nowadays that I cannot get enough of seagulls. I got up this morning at 5 to start planning some canvasses. Who me? Yup! I also went down to the rocks two nights ago to see them returning to their rocks. Seagulls leave in the late afternoon to drink water from a fresh source, such as the dams and rivers a few miles inland. On returning, their movements are at the most gracious as they glide in slowly towards their coming slumber. The guys I photographed in the sunset scene were still keen to dive down into the waves for morsels brought in by the strong tide, a little bedtime snack, I suppose!
The painting is somewhat similar to the one in the post about the dolosse. I love the juxtaposition of man-made boats, homes and dolosse with natural elements like rocks, water, clouds and birds. Painting size is 4oo mm x 4oo mm (15.7 " x 15.7 ") Oil on cotton wraparound canvas.
