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.
