Gulls over Open Sea

This week I feature a new original painting "Gulls over Open Sea"  I have always admired Herring Gulls; they are powerful in flight, graceful and agile.  This painting is done with acrylic paint on canvasboard, framed with a mahogany stained wood frame with a white liner.  The painting is 16" x 20" and the overall frame size is 22.5" x 26.5".

Because they are social, I have depicted several gulls, most flying in different poses.

I have placed one gull on the water, shown about to rejoin his colleagues in the air

And to add Atlantic coast context (and a little variety in colour), I painted a buoy to a lobster trap on the water.
