Sunday Funday - "Bird" Mixed Media


It's always to fun to finish a piece. I finally finished "Bird" this afternoon. It is a mixed media piece on a 20" x 20" gallery wrapped canvas. I decided to transfer the words bird, fly, sky, and soar in the blank spaces to balance it out some. Then using a combination of acrylic paint and oil pastels I finished off the color scheme. I went with a triadic scheme focusing on the primary colors with some subtle accent colors in the corners. I am very pleased with how it turned out. This is a gift for my mother-in law from my father-in law. Her birthday isn't until late March.......so no procrastinating here. I am now very excited about beginning some new projects using the same methods. I'll post them as I start them up. SOLD
