Hey Friends, This piece started with the printed paper from my GranBabes piano practice book.
Thought a few process shots might be fun. The paper has been gelled to the thick canvas and starting with the blue acrylics.
The stamp I carved myself and I added the vine so it could be green.
Here I have finished with the stamp and painted in the utility wire with the blackbirds resting. I don't know if you can tell but I really like the finger prints I made all over the piece. Kinda like certain brush strokes but made with the fingers.
And I have found quite a few feathers this year and I like them a lot so I use them every chance I get. And here are the edges of the piece. Did you notice how stained and worn my table is? I like to put paint right on the table instead of the palette, especially when working with a tiny brush and very small strokes. I shall put this in my Etsy Shop.
