ABOUT THE ART

I always feature something beachy for my July or August desktop calendar, and this painting was a natural for this year. I am immensely proud of how the wave turned out, and really I’m pretty pleased with all of it.

The title is true, I just decided to be honest there. The seagull is standing on a beach on Hilton Head Island and I’d like to be there at just about any point, weather conditional.

I took photos of the beach when I visited my niece and I’m just working my way around to a few. It was January and the weather was quite calm so not too many exciting waves, but this colorful swell was actually very nice. The little riffle behind the gull, the curl of foam in front, I painted until I could hear it. So many of the artists I follow are painting waves these days, and I see wave workshops. I also wanted to catch that wave and just do at least one. I painted this on a scrap of Wallis sanded pastel paper because I needed to layer the pastel in just that way.

This was my painting from Day 27. See other paintings in this and other painting challenges on the page Creative Challenges.
