Above is the WIP. Acrylic on stretched canvas.
This one is finished. Both were incorrectly photographed in poor lighting. But I am very motivated to keep on. The city scene is so out of context for me. But I am doing it for discipline-and I'm loving it. I set up a grid on the photo, and drew a grid on the canvas. I've never painted that way before, but it's the only way I can do complicated subjects. I'm about half done with the top one.
I have plans to do more bird sculpting-it's been so long since I made birds.
We are getting rain here today. It's about 40 degrees, dismal of course, but I did hear a robin sing its spring song for about 10 seconds a few days ago. We have some robins here all year around-so it's not unusual at all for us to see them-but hearing that song was so nice!
