Soaring

'Soaring' 
6x6 oil on panel
SOLD
I snapped a few shots of these seagulls wheeling and diving gracefully above the Vince Lombardi Rest Area on one of our drive by's. I cropped the ones I wanted to paint and focused on giving the composition a sense of movement. I've also been sketching pelicans, which are most interesting birds. Teradactyl-like, they cruise over the Gulf in the late afternoon and are fantastic divers. Meanwhile, gale winds and low temps here in Southwest Florida today, are keeping all but the most intrepid beach goers away from the shore.

J'aime le vol des mouettes... Je crois n'avoir jamais pris autant de photos d'elles que lorsque je me trouvais en séjour à Cape Cod !... J'y reviendrai vite!...
Dans votre peinture l'esprit de liberté est vif... de belles couleurs.
Gros bisous
