It’s mid-winter just now and I’m thinking of the warmth of Florida! This flamingo was lots of fun to paint especially when I found a little used filbert brush tucked away. What fun to use for the feathers! This is quite large at 20 x 30 and I think the colors would brighten any room! Especially a room in Florida!! Hint to husband!!
Believe it or not there’re probably three or four other cows under this one. With acrylics it is pretty easy to paint right over something you don’t like – thank goodness! My favorite part was giving this guy his messy cowlick on top!
I painted this one while dealing with daily migraines – I think that might explain his expression?
I was struck by the beautiful colors of the feathers of this macaw. As I was painting someone entered my studio and said it seemed like he was looking at her saying “How YOU doin? So there is the title. The canvas is quite long but still not long enough for his entire tail – you can use your imagination!
I enjoy painting common everyday things found in the home. Sometimes just a cluster of different shapes can make for an interesting painting. I especially enjoyed the frames for the glasses because I discovered a new paint color. Carbon Black is rich and opaque and I just love it! Note to self: use more Carbon black!!
