Seagul bookmark

Just right I had an idea: why not to paint bookmarks? (possibly a little present?). I immediately rushed onto my paints and brushes. Here is the result after 15 min, mainly with a palette knife. As I used no reference photo, I think my seagul is not realistic.
I think I'll go on with these bookmarks. Véry interesting exercice without any consequence if I'm out of luck.

Excellent idea Philippe! I'm always looking for ways to make small, useful items. They make such great gifts! Plus a great way to practice doing quick studies, too! Keeping it quick and loose :) This is a beauty! I like the little seagull :)

Philippe:  I love this!  It's hard to tell with it lying down but it almost looks like you painted some of it with a palette knife?  Really nice painting and colors.

Very pretty.  Your bird looks like a little sandpiper.  Great idea.  Would be nice as a note card too.
