Now you see it, soon you won't!

I'm not too far from first proof time. Another good session should see it.


Something that has to go is the seagull on the lifeboat house. I'm not happy with it and I've decided I want that side of the 'house' black against white swirling sea. The enlarged pic shows what I mean, I've 'painted ' the area on the computer roughly to illustrate this. (The shape of the swirly bit is subject to more tinkering)

yep, I agree, better without, he made the LBH look a bit small!
It is looking REALLY good

I agree, too. Leads the eye out to the horizon without it, which I think creates more of a flow. :-) Looking fabulous so far. Particularly love the flowery frame at the bottom. xo

I'm sure that the finished artwork will look great, whatever you decide Sue. x

I seem to be a crowd of one, but I like the seagull. He did, for me, the opposite of pulling one out of the composition - rather he pulled one back in. Otherwise, I find that I want to out the boat ramp! I guess I've fallen in love with that bird and he seems to be your signature.

I do like the seagull. He reminds me of a book I read when I was a small child - The Wheel on the School. Either way, though, it looks great.

Got to agree, I like the seagull and do look upon it as your signature in the Cornish scenes, but if he's got to go, he's got to go!

I plan to put a smaller flying seagull in the dark area of the sea and another flying towards the edge of the picture. With the larger one at the top edge that makes 3 trademark seagulls! :-))

I love how this is shaping up, your composition is always so good. And I'm glad the seagulls will be making an appearance, they are such comics.
