Take A Number-Gulls

Close ups

Oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel.

This is for the WDE at Wet Canvas. Christine was the hostess and supplied the reference photos. Thanks, Christine!

I liked the clamor evident in the seagull photo. I wanted to do something in which I could push the chroma level of the color plus leave the strokes unblended. I figured this approach might promote the excitement of the gulls. Don't know if I succeeded all the way, but it was fun trying anyhow.

  1. Fun painting! Reminds me of trips to the beach, catching sand crabs and feeding them to the gulls.

  2. yes...success, I feel the "clamor"--- You are such a good painter...a "slice of life" painter for sure. LOVE it!

  3. Oh have I seen this scene many times! Beautifully handled, as always Dean.

  4. Gulls are one of my favourite subjects too, Dean. You painted them so well!
