More gull paintings from my trip to Cape Cod. Gulls are typically medium to large birds, usually grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They typically have harsh wailing or squawking calls, stout, longish bills and webbed feet. Their large size and loud noise makes them very attractive to painters and photographers.

"The Outer Cape has inspired thousands of acclaimed artists, but perhaps none is more closely associated with its serene yet romantic landscape than Edward Hopper, the esteemed realist painter who lived in Truro for most of the last four decades of his life. Quiet Truro, with its peaceful, sandy lanes, suited the introspective Hopper perfectly." Foder's Cape Cod Travel Guide
