Taking It All In - Makapu'u Lighthouse (completed)

"Taking It All In"
(completed work)
6" x 4" acrylic on canvas on panel

I finished this today and the color in this image is much truer than my first post the other day.  There are no seagulls in Hawaii but we do have, among other seabirds, the White Fairy Tern and I added the terns in the painting for more interest.  The white fairy tern , or  Manu-o-ku in Hawaiian, are very lovely and when I am able to finally get some good close-up photos of them I will paint "portraits" of them.

Below is my reference photograph for this painting.

 Other paintings are in the works, so please return often.  Thank you for your visit today!
