Awakening out of Winter

Awakening out of winter, I finished this gull painting last week, it’s been on my mind and I’ve been sketching the idea since being on Achill last year. In the shallows, the seaweed turns over with the tide, mixing with the foam – rich pickings for the gull.

The majestic herring gull feeding in atlantic shallows.

Strange feeling to paint bright light when the weather was poor here, but since finishing it the weather has turned very warm and bright.
