This seagull came to life on an old collaged and rubber-stamped canvas I’d started years ago and forgotten in a box. I worked in glaze layers to keep hints of the colours in the original background and repeated the style of my “Winter Bullfinch” and “Great Tit” paintings. He might look a bit grumpy (don’t all gulls?) but his funny little legs with their knobbly knees make me smile.
