Since my painting buddy Angela, over at Peach Coglo, blogged about what she's been working on, I thought I'd follow suit.
You know it's the Year of the Bird for me, right? But I'm still experimenting, trying to find the way I want to paint birds. I'm no longer content with trying to paint a "good likeness" of a bird - I want to have my own style when I go about it - and I just haven't quite found it yet. But I think I'm closing in.
I love crows. LOVE CROWS. And I love Klimt. Put them together and you get Klimt Crow.
I'm nowhere near mastering how to incorporate the shapes into the bird - or patterns -or any of it really. There was a lot of time spent staring at it to see what might look good where. But for a first attempt I am pleased.
It's certainly bold - which I like. I love green against purple. And I think it will look good once I whip it in a mat and frame and all that jazz. It was fun and challenging, so I think I'll stay on this path for while and see what develops.
