Javier says this piece was inspired by his trips to the coast to birdwatch. He enjoyed observing the routines of people who live near the sea. Part of his long running series of people enjoying everyday activities, painted from his imagination without any visual references. He starts with a single sketch to determine the composition and then begins drawing, with most of the colors already mapped out in his head. "It is an important moment," Javier explains, "getting the colors right is crucial to achieve balance."
