Spring Chicken... and the wonder that is bright colours
So after spending a lot of my time producing mixed media pieces, the call of painting won me over. There is something very therapeutic about painting, well my style of it anyway. Messy...would be an understatement!! I am usually covered in paint, but it is soooo worth it. I love the textures that can be created with thick bold brush strokes and a stylised manner, and the contrast between the watered down dripping parts and the built up areas around the beak.
There is also a very spring like- fresh colour scheme going on here, which is unusual for me, but this has inspired a series of "fresh" paintings. I'm not exactly sure when they are going to happen...but bear with me it will!
