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.

Great idea Phillippe, I must give it a go.

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.
