Better than the fresnel lens being right, your gulls look like real live gulls not stuffed ones! Great work.

Thank you very much!
I made this one from details of a few different  lighthouses, unfortunally I never saw this kind of lighthouses myself,(but eager to see)).  Actually, this painting was inspired by the film " A very long engagement" :)

чайки меня прямо как-то загипнотизировали своим полетом, потому как они несут  определенное настроение, какую-то историю неопределенную, но волнующую, такое вот лично у меня от них впечатление... и композиция у них хорошая, нет ни одной лишней, хорошая вещь получилась, можно сказать медитативная даже, немного смущает монохромное море, но может так и задумано было, я не знаю...вобщем здорово...

Спасибо))   решила на полную уже оторваться по поводу чаек, которые всё чаще и чаще у меня возникают на работах)))
на самом деле, картинка вдохновлена фильмом "Долгая помолвка", там тоже имел место очень похожий маяк с кружащимися вокруг белыми птицами)),  ну и собственные впечатления (полёт над морем на парашюте и любовь к маякам)      а море- уж как умею, в моём любимом для изображения погодном состоянии  и колорите))

Жаль, а я фильм не смотрела..
полет кстати ощущается) и чаек и автора)
ну, про море традиционно всплывает Айвазовский, на днях показывали его мастерскую в Коктебеле, и оказалось, что большинство своих работ он писал вовсе не с натуры, как я всегда думала, а в этой самой мастерской, причем с одним окном)

ну, ради Гаспара Улиеля можно и посмотреть, он там само очарование)))), ну и Одри Тоту как всегда, этакий драматический вариант "Амели", с эпохой первой мировой в качестве фона)

у одной моей близкой приятельницы Амели любимый фильм, это определенное мировосприятие, у другой фильм про Фриду Кало, а это совсем другое, а меня вот как-то не задела ни одна из этих историй, грустновато даже, потому что здорово, когда люди на одной волне и понимают друг друга с полуслова....

hehe...  You and your seagulls. ;-)  As always, you capture their chaos and cacophony so well!   I like the way you have arranged them so they spiral off into the distance and the waves.

Well, yes))   lately, the seagulls makes appearance on my works time and time again.  This is a little apotheosis of my seagulls))

hehe.....  well, I know how many times "hands" show up in my sculptures.  Sometimes it's nice to have a symbol you can work into many different places.

Blessings to you!

Exhilarating ... and as with many of your works, I love the sense of graceful movement here. The colors are so subtle and atmospheric, I would've guessed watercolor before oil. Masterfully done.
