It's been a day of weather weirdness today, with the heavens shining forth bright sunshine interrupted by torrential downpours and random bouts of gusting winds. All very haphazard and typical for this part of the world. The roof's leaking and there's a funky damp smell hovering which is only going to stop when the landlord fixes the dodgy flashing on the chimney stack, and clears the gutters. Aaaaah...welcome the dawn of the British summer!
As there's water, water everywhere it seemed appropriate to mark the day with something appropriately water related - it's tenuous, but work with me here - so today's arty farty episode is a cocky lookin' sea gull, ankle deep in web-soothing sea water:
Fun with layers and some more layers and texture and splooshy stuff (acrylic paints, Neocolor IIs, Derwent Graphik Paint pens, indian ink, Treasure Gold gilding wax, white Uni Ball gel pen and a black Gelato round the edges). I'm adding it as a link to the wonderful 'sea theme' post on the magnificent 'Art Journal Journey' blog - make sure you visit them and browse the work of the talented people who link there, ok?
That's it for today ... just a little 'un. Hope you like Mr S. Gull and his smiley beaky cheeky attitude! Sending out oodles of hugs from Water World! See you soon - Shroo :) xxx
