Uncrowded Beach, 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord panel, ©2013, Fay Terry
Seagulls are interesting birds to watch. This one has more brown feathers than gray ones. The beach was empty and he seemed to be looking for other gulls to hang out with.
I am very pleased with the way this came out as I did the entire painting by changing the color slightly each time I put down a stroke and then leaving it alone, which I call "lay it and leave it". Sometimes a painting gets very homogenized by blending strokes.
