18 x 24 - oils
I'm having a love/hate relationship with this painting. It seems as I get one part to look as it should, another part pushes forward throwing it out of balance. That's progress for you perhaps.
I'm still glazing and building layers of colour. The colour of the sea still evades me but I am coming to terms with it now. I'll let it evade me and create the colour that suits me. Right now its not the right colour. Another couple of days drying then some glazes to tone down the colour will help.
The gannet needed some adjustments for its wing shapes and I'm beginning to add some detail to the feathers. I don't know if I ever want to paint another bird. Too many feathers and they are nothing something I've ever painted a lot. Its all just light and shade right? That's what gets me through it.
