Gull on rock

8x6 oil on canvas panel

He was eyeballing me. It's tough for me to get that little  2 inch bird painted well. His eye smooshed out hugh, i used a tiny bursh but it wasn't done close to what i wanted. I guess there's no reason not to paint several editions until i can get the paint flowing, and colorful.  This is down at Seawall where i can't believe there is a single periwinkle left from every kid picking up one to take home far away.

Tiny eyeballs - hmmm...have you ever tried a toothpick with a dot of paint? Sometimes it works. You must be having very nice weather to be out plein airing! Would you like some of my wind? or maybe some windchill? I'll share...
