This guy turned out a little more serious than I expected, hence the title, “Oh Wise Seagull.” He looks rather wise, doesn’t he? I enjoyed working some interesting textures into this piece. I also liked using more of a contrast – using pale colors with dark outlines. It created an effect that I wasn’t quite expecting. I suppose that’s the beauty of art, isn’t it? You never really know what you’ll wind up with. Sometimes the surprise is pleasant, sometimes it’s frustrating, but overall, it’s always worthwhile.

  1. I love how you worked the shading on this collage. The textures you used on the top of the head are beautiful and they go along with the fact that this bird has feathers. I also admire how, with the shading around the eyes, you made some wrinkles deep but others that don’t look quite so deep, as you can expect from any seagull. This is a wonderful collage.
