Oil on canvas
8" x 10"
Another gull painted this summer. Didn't hold still long enough for plein air, photo reference helped here. Again, limited palette, alizarin, ultramarine, white, over yellow ochre underpainting.
I like to stain all my canvas so the white glare isn't blinding if painting outside. I also like it when the underpainting shows though the layers. Yellow ochre helps give an overall warm atmosphere.
Tip: Use up left over paints by mixing together as mud and painting a staining layer on white canvas.
