more gulls

 
(7x11)
Here's one that I'll definitely have to paint again--and faster: the lines in the water that are supposed to be ripples (!) are too hard-edged, defined. Also, I think I have to intensify the reflected color on the gulls themselves.
It's weird to me that my mind hampers me from painting things it knows to be white in other colors! Perhaps if I did one of those things they recommend to break the mind's hold on your perceptions, like turning the paper upside-down? Or maybe I should just tell my mind to butt out.

But it looks so good! I did not notice any of those things until you pointed them out, I noticed the great colors, reflections, I love it the way it is!

No, I didn't notice those things, either, but just the beautiful colors and shapes :)

My mind has such sharp control of my hands too. Still, Laura, this is beautiful with color!

Love all your waterbirds, Laura. I forgot to mention last post that I'm going to check out the loft--I've never been! These are all great!

I love your birds. They're very calm and serene. I love the bright and vibrant colors. Beautiful work.
