Seagull

Do you know how hard it is to do a plein air drawing of  seagull that will not sit still? No, well I find it a bit difficult, but I had fun trying. I did this drawing several weeks ago and was not able to get it posted at the time due to pc problems, since then, I had forgot all about it. I’m thinking that I want to try something like this with the ink and watercolors to bring out some depth to the white parts of the seagull.

Ink drawing.

  1. Seagulls really struggle to sit still on round railings or bollards, because they have flat feet. I see you did give your seagull a flat object to sit on. I wonder, maybe he had restless legs! LOL
    Have a great day,

    • That is probably the reason why it was it wouldn’t stay still, and didn’t stay long, lol. Thanks for commenting, Jan!

    Yes I can imagine how hard it would be painting a Seagull, however considering he / she wouldn’t stand still and was busy fidgetting the whole time I think that you did rather well with it…

      • Six hours ahead of me here. Not as bad as I thought. I have another friend in England that is 8 hours ahead of me. It makes it kind of hard for us to catch one another at a decent time. But you stay up late and make it so easy. You are a night owl I take it.
        Thank you for viewing and commenting on my boats too. 🙂

        Have a good night, Andro.
