Breaking Waves, The North Sea, #12/08

High winds with 3 seagulls
oil on canvas
20 x 140 cm
painted on location, Sunday 19 Oct 2008


I had to get as low as possible, thus protecting myself and the painting from the ever present wind blowing harshly on this wonderful sunny and bright Sunday morning. Not a saiboat in sight, although these three feathered creatures seemed to be enjoying getting tossed about by the cold gale. Good thing I had my painting gloves with me, allowing my hands to swiftly brush on those multi colored North Sea hues.
A close up for your viewing pleasure.
