Two fun bird collages came to life in my studio this winter, a commission that came about through the Saugeen Artists Guild online store. Check out this opportunity to purchase paintings, jewelry and other handmade items online from several artists at https://saugeen-artists.square.site/
These two feathered friends have been delivered to their new home where they join a lovely painting in a similar style. When I painted these, I deliberately left a lot of original white canvas spaces and added coloured bands of bright warm colours that matched the client's original painting. Normally I start with a very dark underpainting and add many layers that get brighter and brighter until I add the final highlights. This was a fun challenge for me!
