Sandpipers and Pebbles

Sandpipers & Pebbles

The next in my series of bird paintings.  I had gone with my friends to see finding Dorie at the movie theatre.  At the beginning of the movie they had a cute movie short about a baby sandpiper.  That inspired me to do a painting of western sandpipers.  I wanted a different view of the birds and instead of the usual blue ocean scene I chose to have the setting sun and all the golds and orange reflecting in the water.  This played beautifully with the warm colors of the sandpipers and made the bluegreens of the ocean wave pop.  This painting is 12 x 24 Acrylic on canvas
