Mixed media on a 7x5 hardboard.
I used thin acrylic washes of ultr. blue, burnt sienna, and sap green--Tombow brush pen--Pitt Pen--and a touch of colored pencil.
I tried to play the realism of the bird against an abstract background. I liked how the acrylic washes flowed and beaded up to make interesting formations. The action of the thin acrylic upon the smooth gessoed hardboard was what really held my interest.
I just love painting birds. I had fun with it.
This is my submission to the WDE at Wet Canvas. The image was graciously supplied by Jeanette.
