Seagulls and Stovepipes

"Seagulls and Stovepipes"
11 x 15 inches - Watercolor

I painted this scene while doing a painting demonstration at Dancing Coyote Gallery in Depoe Bay, Oregon. I had been walking on the Lincoln City beach (at Roads End) and was noticing all of the cool chimneys that the beach-side houses sport. And of course while I was checking out the neat chimneys I was also noticing the many seagulls hanging out on the housetops (causing trouble no doubt).

Love how you've incorporated both positive and negative painting in this one. Was Depot Bay as busy as usual? some times it's hard to find room on the walk ways. Pretty area over looking the bay entry.

Thanks Nancy. I enjoy trying to get both positive and negative painting to work together. Depoe Bay was quite busy! The weather also turned out pretty good.
