Can you be attacked by seagulls in your studio? Yes, you can. You would expect it to happen during an en plein air session, but indoors?
Seagulls can spoil an afternoon when you are hit by droppings as they fly over you. The other day I had an unexpected experience of a similar kind while I was painting in my studio.
Applying the finishing touches to my work I wanted to add a couple of seagulls. Guess what happened. No sooner had I painted them in than I found white paint on my sleeve. The next thing I knew it was on my trousers and even on the finished painting. Fortunately I was able to rescue the painting. However, I was not so lucky with my shirt and trousers.
The acrylic painting on a 40x50cm canvas panel shows cars on the Dartmouth ferry. You can see Kingswear through the life buoy and you can catch a glimpse of Dartmouth in the mirror of one of the cars. The original is destined for an exhibition in June.
