This is a painting I did of some little sandpipers that were at a beach on Long Island Sound. I watched these birds scurrying on the sand at the waters edge. I did a few sketches and took photos and painted this watercolor in my studio. This painting is 15″x 29″ overall and is framed in a whitewashed frame that compliments the painting nicely. This first photo below is a closeup of the painting. I used a nice bright blue for the water and added texture to the sand. I painted the birds realistically and showed them in different running positions.
With the long horizontal format of the painting I was able to include several of the birds. The painting is double matted in acid free mat board and comes with a off white/biege driftwood like frame. Price: $450. Contact me with any questions about the painting or purchasing the painting. Thanks, PJ
