Flight Path completed
The funny puffin coming in for a landing is complete and on his way to the gallery tomorrow.
I quite enjoyed painting this bird and perhaps will try another seabird in the near future. A gull maybe if I can get the right composition and light, not that there's any shortage of gulls around here! They're brazen and would snatch food right out of your hand given half a chance. It always amazes me at how large the gulls are, mostly herring gulls that I see here, but there are other varieties around. I'm just not up on them.
But for now, this little clown will head out into the world. Its 24" x 30" in oil on gallery canvas. Gary Jones has kindly provided the reference image for this piece.
