Watercolor painting of Sanderlings by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Zippy Sanderlings

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 10.5”h x 7.5”w, 2015.

Sanderlings are such cute, animated birds, and they are so fun to watch. When they hunt the shoreline, they zip along darting among the edge of a surf’s wave. In this painting I wanted to capture the cuteness as well as the beauty of these amazing small birds, so I used their reflections to enhance the artwork which I thought made a pleasing addition to the composition.

This painting exhibited in the ‘Small Pleasures” exhibition, Brackenwood Gallery,
