Day One

Oil on canvas
8" x 10"

Laughing gull on Seabrook Island, South Carolina.  Painted in July after family reunion.  

Under painted with yellow ochre, and used limited palette with ultramarine, alizarian, burnt umber, and white.  Lemon yellow with white to give highlights a hint of sun. Used larger brushes in an attempt to loosen up.  Completed in about three hours.
