To do Blogtoberfest, or not to do Blogtoberfest, that is the question...
Life is going to be busy for the next couple weeks so I am also trying to get in all the art I can. (housework be damned!) So remember a while back, I bought a pretty big canvas for a call for art for a new massage place, but I didn't get it started in time? (I bought the canvas on the same day it should have been turned IN.) Well, that blank canvas has been just hanging around taunting me.
So... yesterday as I was in the parking lot of a favorite store, we noticed THESE:
So, on the way home, I was thinking of them, and then BAZINGA! I remembered that canvas. Its like 24 x 48. and I did most of it last night, finished up at 6am this morning. I didn't think the cars in the background did anything for them, so I used a new technique that I never have done before, where you squirt the wet paint and let it run. Cool effect! My first experience with Liquid Frisket. A liquid masking stuff that you paint on everything you DON'T want paint on. Kind fun, even if a little pricey.
Since I took this picture, I have made the 'drumsticks' a little less pronounced, and the feathers lighter on the bird on the left. Funny how putting on the computer makes you see things you didn't before.
