"Watching" by Carol Thompson


"A gull stands on the golden sand of the seashore 'watching' for the slightest changes that may come.”

Artist comment:  "This is a pastel painting of a Heerman's gull, a seasonal visitor to the Pacific Northwest. This exceptional gull has a bright red beak and black legs. It is smaller than the common herring gulls that are local residents. I used pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper for its smooth ground that allowed me to get the fine detail I needed. I rendered the background in warm tones to exemplify the cools of the gull."
