What I love about this painting is the mental walk I can take through it. The warm sun, the sounds. It all comes back to me. I took my inspiration right off Carolina Beach and brought into my studio and on my canvas. I was here at this site. I hired the seagulls with a bag of Corn Pops cereal and photographed them. I must have shot 100 photos or so. For my painting reference I used 10 images.
For this art, I wanted the paint thick, the colors abstract and broken. My biggest take away from this painting: Go thicker on the next one. Keep the layers wet.
