Bird of Paradise

Acrylic on 7 x 9 Canvas Panel

     Wow, this took a while but I am very pleased how it turned out.  I used thin washes, so there are many many layers to this piece.  Using thin washes is time consuming, but it adds a lot of depth.    AND  I didn’t have any trouble mixing color which was a great surprise.  I do need to work on blending and I  need lots of practise with brush strokes.   I’m still very excited that I finshed it!  I am going to live with this for a couple of days before I varnish it just in case I want to change something, but I am calling this done and I’m ready to move on to something else.

      I wish I had some words of wisdom for painting in acrylics, but this medium is still  foreign to me.  The only thing I can say is just to paint and if you mess up just throw on some gesso and try it again!  


Have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!!!!!
