Posing at Alcatraz
I have always wanted to paint.
Well, let me comment further on that statement, as it needs a bit more clarification.
I have always wanted to paint as an artist. However, that particular talent is not one that I have been blessed with in any way, shape or form. Nevertheless, I admire those that have the ability to paint so much, and I love to view good paintings and walk through great art galleries.
In 2011, hubby captured this photo of a lovely seagull on a visit to Alcatraz Island and gave it to me when he returned home. He said that the gull just seemed to want to pose for a picture and sat there quite still for the longest time in a perfect spot with the sun shining nicely on it.
I decided to do my best to create a dry brush portrait of this special bird from the original photo, even though it was all done digitally.
Sometimes it is nice to have a little creative fun with photos, especially when I would love to be able to paint the picture instead of just capturing it with the camera. Now, give me a paint-by-number set, and I might have a fighting chance!
I have loved this special little artistic project since 2011, and I’m happy to share it today!
