I've spent some time finishing up details on a few paintings and Vertigo is one of them. This is the final view of a Northern Gannet soaring over the ocean. They dive like rockets, straight as an arrow, into the water to catch fish and its quite amazing to see them.
The feathers on the wings were the most difficult part of the bird. It was a matter of breaking them down into small parts and just working steadily through them to get the task finished. Some more glazing of the water surface and working on additional details of the head and overall values and I'm calling this complete.
I ran a segment of video while I was finishing some details of the bird. Its quite difficult for me to talk about what I'm doing and paint at the same time, so there are gaps or stumbled words that didn't come out as I wanted them to do.
