oils on wood panel,size 7x14 inches.
These small seabirds are European Storm Petrels that spend most of their time out over the open sea.I have done the painting quite loose(for me!!),so the details could have been better,but i hope that i have captured the joy of the open ocean!.

You have captured the Petrels and swell of the sea very well there, Dave .

Lovely painting, it's always fascinated me how storm petrels spend so much time out in rough seas when they're so small! I really like the colours of the wave behind them. :)

Thanks for your comment Kay,one odd thing about them! is that whilst they can't walk much on land,they can walk across the surface of the water to catch their prey.
