Seagull on Causeway Beach by Marcy Brennan

9" x 12" Oil on Canvas Panel

This is a plein air painting I started on Causeway Beach at the Fort Pierce Inlet.  As I'm a novice plein air painter, it tickled me to have two ladies come up behind me saying to each other, "Look, that lady is painting!"  They apparently had never come across someone painting on site.  It was kind of exciting.  The weather turned chilly and the wind picked up before I could finish this, but having been there allowed me to really capture what I was feeling once back in my studio.  I'd been standing in the shade of these palm trees, so I came home and pulled out some photos of them to add them and create my focal point for this painting.  I couldn't resist adding a sweet little seagull to the composition.
