“Graham the Gull” – a pointillist portrait of a seagull
My nineteenth painting for advent, 19th December 2013.
Back to the beach with my camera where I managed very few decent photographs… The gulls just seemsed to blend into the water and all other wildlife was moving too quickly for the poor light conditions. But sometimes a good painting can be inspired, or rather – informed, by a bad photo… and, as I so enjoyed the pointillist approach that I tried on my recent sandpiper painting, I decided that I’ll create a mini series of dotty sea birds.
This one is named after my brother Graham – who seems to enjoy making pun-fueled comments on my Facebook Art Page.
