Turnstones 'n Tattler 9" x 12" acrylic

Two black turnstones and a wandering tattler forage among the rocks during a low tide. When the tides recede along the coast it is like the dinner table is set for birds and other land animals because a plethora of food that is normally submerged becomes exposed. I was inspired to create this painting by the subtle hues of the overcast day and how the water reflected the rocks. The wave in the background was added to enhance the coastal effect of the scene.
