"Seagull Haven" by Carol Thompson

"A steep rocky cliff provides a perfect 'seagull haven' to shelter nature`s creatures from storms or predators."

Artist comment:  "The many cliffs and 'stack' rocks along the Pacific Northwest coast of Washington and Oregon, are ideal for seagulls to habituate, and procreate. They are protected from the salt spray from below, and the nooks and crannies provide relief from rain and biting wind. As I observed the gulls gathering to nest there, I was fascinated by this aspect of nature providing for its own. I made mental notes and quick sketches of the area to use as reference later in my oil painting studio. I began with a sketch on stretched canvas, indicating the major waves and positions of the rocks and cliff. I started painting the sky and middle ground water. I completed that area including the foam patterns, and then moved on to the foreground. Here, where the frothy foam had become seafoam green in color, I lightened my basic green and filled in the spaces that would be 'between' the floating foam. Lastly, I rendered all the white in the foam patterns and splashes and the run-off from the rocks."
