‘Reflections - Red-billed Gull’

Painting description

A red-billed Seagull standing in rippling waves, reflected in the water.

Artist Statement

‘This was painted from a photo taken during a stroll along the beach at Mahurangi Regional Park. The waves were gently lapping but were darkened by a screen of cloud, leaving a just a sheen of light about the reflection. A calm and tranquil day.’
