Our next door neighbor is an avid fisherman and spends the whole day surf fishing. The birds know his routine well especially this one gull who hangs out in the area waiting for the leftover bait. I painted this guy quickly by blocking in the darks and the background with thin paint and building up the paint on the gull and the sand. I used a palette knife for the last layers.
