Cormorant Coast

A mixed media improvised seascape with a cormorant seabird theme. This started out as an experiment using pastels with an old painting as a base. The brush strokes of the mostly dark paint suggested rocky outcrops so I expanded on this with a dramatic sunbeam filled sky. I pondered adding some wildlife to the scene and cormorants seemed a fitting addition. Cormorants are a large seabird, it has an almost primitive appearance with its long neck making it appear reptilian. It is often seen standing with its wings held out to dry. Regarded by some as somewhat sinister and greedy, cormorants are supreme fishers. #MyArt #Artwork #Cormorants #Seascape #birds Just added to my artwork pages at, Fineartamerica, https://fineartamerica.com/featured/cormorant-coast-philip-harvey.html Society6, https://society6.com/product/cormorant-coast_print Also Redbubble, https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/79088165?asc=u
