8x6in oil on canvas board 100.
Some new little vessels to add to my collection.
Always fun to explore them in paint but I notice
how carefully I paint them until I have done them
a few times. It will be fun to see how loose I can
get and still achieve a likeness.
I did not have the feather in at first - see below -
and I felt something was missing so I went hunting
for the perfect item. Tried quite a few things.
The feather is just a simple curved shape but I think it improved it.
Do you agree?
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
