The original painting of this giclee print is a watercolor on canvas. I love the organic texture I can achieve working on canvas which is a whole different feel than with paper. I photographed the Ring-billed Gull on an overcast day which seem gray and dull till I zoomed in and saw the reflection and the beauty of the earthy colors. The Gull seemed to be reflecting on his thoughts also and made me think of times when standing at the waters edge letting the surf gently roll over my feet. Peaceful and relaxing.
