Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.
I've had this photo in my collection for quite some time-wanting to paint it. I had been painting it in my mind. That is, I was going over what I wanted to try for with this one. I laid in thick paint with a painting knife then went in with a brush. My aim was to have the thick paint inner blend in beautiful ways, creating new and unexpected colors! Textural excitement.
I feel as if I half way got there. Some parts I really like...that's why I've included three close ups.
The chick on the left appears to be too short compared to the one on the right. The painting is true to the photo, but since it looks strange, maybe I should fix it. What do you think??
