Seagulls

     Wanted to paint a sea-scape. Found an interesting picture on the net. It was fun painting the waves... one of those times when I did not want to try too hard and let the picture emerge of its own free will. The painting came out nice but some how it looked lifeless. the waves just did not have the life that I wanted. As an after thought I decided to add the sea gulls. It immediately brought life into the barren sea. What do you think ? At least I felt so, and decided to honor them by calling the painting 'Seagulls'

  1. Hi Asit,
    Indeed the seagulls have brought more life to your painting. And I very much like the seascape itself - lovely!

  2. Beautiful seascape!!!!! Adding the seagulls tells us that there is fish in the area... so, yes, I love the added gulls, AK !!! Wonderful powerful waves as well...

  3. True, the gulls added depth and life, the abstracted waves and washes have added a mystery to the composition.

  9. I don't have the luxury of seeing this painting without the gulls Asit, but with or without, you have captured enormous vitality in those swirling waves.
