About Seagull and Beach Painting

Title: Seagull Beach
Size:
6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A beach painting with a seagull sitting on top of a post in the foreground and ocean waves gently rolling into shore in the background, all against a partly cloudy sky overhead. Beautiful and soothing, this seaside artwork is a must-have for any beach lover and will be a perfect addition to your coastal-themed home or office decor. Composed by hand on quality stretched canvas and signed by American artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

The composition of this seaside painting consists of a sandy beach, gentle ocean waves, and a seagull in the foreground. The aquatic color scheme has both a soothing and calming effect on its viewer.

This oil painting measures 6″x6″. Its small size makes it perfect for tight places with limited space. (See “Small Paintings for Small Spaces” for more info.)

I hand-painted it on gallery-wrap canvas. This allowed me to paint on the sides or edges of the canvas. What this means is the canvas wraps around the support bars and is stapled at the back instead of the sides. This gives the painting a modern look and it can be hung on the wall without having to be put into a frame. Most of the paintings I do today are composed on this type of canvas.

Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A nautical-themed painting of a wooden boat. The boat is completely isolated from the viewer, who can only see the boat’s bow and the water. This painting exhibits strong contrasts between light and dark, as well as warmth and cool. The warmth of the sun is felt as it strikes the bow of the boat and casts a dark shadow in the cool water below.

Bow of the Boat painting is composed on gallery wrap stretched canvas and does not require a frame before display since the composition extends around the edges of the canvas. Hand-painted and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

This painting comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity. More information here.

Artist Comments

Artists are frequently influenced by other artists whose artwork they admire. The inspiration for Bow of the Boat came from an art teacher of years ago. He enjoyed doing paintings of boats. In several of his paintings, he would crop out the rest of the boat to draw attention to a specific part or area of a boat, just as I did in this one.

Artist Comments

A Boy and His Dog is a painting reminiscent of the happiest times in life when we were carefree and simple things amazed us. Sometimes life gets so complicated that it’s nice to stop and remember the days of our youth.

When my children were young, like the little boy in this painting, I loved to watch their fascination with the simplest things in life. Things that, as an adult, I often took for granted. Sometimes it’s nice to slow down and enjoy simple pleasures like this again.

Artist Comments

Sometimes I like to give myself a challenge when choosing a subject matter for my paintings. I found these fishing boat fenders tied to the pillar of a fishing pier very interesting because of all the different textures (wood pier, rusty chains, and rubbery boat fenders) present. I thought they would make an interesting challenge trying to paint all that texture. One does get a sense of texture from the detail in this artwork.

Other paintings that were a study of texture are:

For more information on the subject of texture and how it is used in art, see the art lesson: Basic Art Element — Texture

What are boat fenders?

A boat fender is a type of bumper or cushioned buffer used to prevent a boat or other watercraft from bumping into a dock, pier, or another boat causing damage to its hull. They are often constructed of rubber, foam, or plastic, and they come in various shapes and sizes depending on their use.

Artist Comments

One summer, my husband, Robert, and I loaded up the kids and headed off for an adventure on the Outer Banks to discover the lighthouses we’d heard so much about. We were living in Virginia at the time, while Robert was serving in the military and was only two hours away from the OBX (Outer Banks). Currituck Lighthouse was our first stop and the favorite of all the lighthouses we visited that fun-filled weekend. We were excited to discover that visitors can climb its 220 steps to the top and look at the spectacular view. We’ve been back to this lighthouse several times since that first trip, and we always enjoy seeing it again. This painting of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse depicts the fun time we had on that trip.

About the Lighthouse

Currituck Beach Lighthouse is located at Whale Head Bay in Corolla, North Carolina, on the northern end of the “Outer Banks.” Its distinct unpainted natural red brick appearance contrasts with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast, which are painted in striking black and white. The lighthouse was constructed in 1875 and is still being used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors.

certificate of authenticity

This painting comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity. More information here.

Artist Comments

Artists will often use reference photos to compose their paintings. Sometimes they will create their composition from only one photo, and other times several photos are used. There’s nothing wrong with painting from photographs; artists do it all the time.

Still Life with Coral and Lantern combines several such reference photographs that depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my artwork. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures that live in the ocean in large colonies that look like plants. They will live all of their adult lives in one place and prefer the places where the water is warmer. When they die, their skeletons form a hard stony substance, also called coral. Large deposits of coral often accumulate to form reefs or islands.

I had never used coral in a painting before, so as I considered painting a still life with a nautical theme, I felt it would be interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine-themed still life.

Title: Fisherman in a Red Rowboat
Size:

Support: Canvas panel board
Description:  A seascape with a fisherman and a bright red rowboat. The small fishing boat is moored to a piling surrounded by a calm sea. The sky is cloudy and overcast.  Inside the boat, a fisherman holds a fishing rod, waiting for a fish to take his bait. The colors are vibrant and full of life in this piece, and its composition is serene and calming.  It makes an excellent gift choice for someone who enjoys fishing.

Fisherman in a Red Rowboat is a seascape painting composed on a quality canvas panel board, it will require a frame before it is displayed. Hand-painted and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

Fishing is a popular recreation and pastime for those lucky enough to find the time to fish for the “big one.” I don’t particularly like to fish myself, I find it rather boring, however, I do have several friends who enjoy this sport. But this doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy painting someone fishing. I do!

I found this particular fisherman painting an interesting subject to paint with that red boat tied up to a piling. This is one of my earlier paintings and unfortunately, I don’t have a better photograph of it. It is so much more wonderful when viewed in person.

Perched high on a bluff approximately 150 feet above the sea, it stands watch over the Oregon coast 2 miles north of the famous Sea Lion Caves. Its beam can be seen for 21 nautical miles making it the strongest light on Oregon’s coastline. Heceta Head Lighthouse is a favorite place for tourists as it is one of the most-visited lighthouses in the United States. The lighthouse offers visitors easy access and an outstanding view of the Oregon coastline and the Pacific Ocean.

About this Oregon Coast Painting

Title: Oregon Coast South of the Sea Lion Caves
Size:

Support: Canvas panel board
Description: An oil painting of the Oregon coast looking south from the Sea Lion Caves. The waves have many different shades of blue and white caps. The painting has a very calming effect on the viewer.

This painting is composed on a quality canvas panel and does require a frame before it is displayed. Hand-painted and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

This ocean wave painting is one of my early pieces. It was painted when I was just getting started as a professional artist. The composition depicts the Oregon Coast as seen from the “Sea Lion Caves” looking south towards Cox Rock, one of the thousands of islands off the coast of Oregon.

The Sea Lion Caves are America’s largest sea caves and are located about halfway along Oregon’s 400 miles of coastline. It is accessible via the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway U.S. Highway 101. Visit the Sea Lion Caves website for more information.

There isn’t much information available about Cox Rock. I discovered that it is an island off the coast of Oregon that is difficult to find if you want to explore it. Visitors to the island will most likely want to use their GPS to get there.
