Virtual Paintout #1 – Valparaiso, Chile

I wanted to go ahead and get this one posted. I’ve been working on it for a few days and have maybe seven or eight hours in it. I think I could make it a whole lot nicer with a couple more hours, but it seems to be eluding me. I’m not sure what I need to do with it.

I think I’d like to lighten up the water some and maybe darken the gull a little. I also think the houses in the background need to be taken out of focus a little.

This is a kelp gull that the Google car just happen to catch off the western coast of Chile. I am posting it to this month’s Virtual Paintout.
