A quickie.. Trying to get back to painting is difficult! This started as wash of blue, green, and red all over the paper..I let my subconscious dictate the flow of pigment. I wasn't planning to paint a seagull.. Then I used a sponge and wiped the white area.. It looked like a seagull, so it became one.. A nice exercise..

Maine's most photographed and painted place..
I like the lighter cloud in the middle of the sky at the top..This was achieved by wiping the paint with a paper towel...I did the sky first as it was my main interest..I did the foreground last..I got bored at the end, and did not feel like putting any more details..Overall, I like it..

I was mainly interested in the personality of my friend, Carole..I focused on the eyes..The rest was applied very loosely..I did use a grid for the first time..I think it helped to achieve accurate facial details..However, it's hard to erase..Not sure if I'll try a grid again..We'll see..Three colors used: Rose Madder, Aureolin yellow, and cobalt blue...
