Day 357. Painted Wrapping Bird

22 Dec


It was inevitable. Sooner or later I had to use Christmas wrapping paper for my canvas. I think it would work better after being mounted on another surface. But, that’s why I like to experiment on this blog. I learn new things every day. Next year, I might just put some of the things I’ve learned into practice. Happy holidays.

10 days and counting!

Day 253. Tissue Bird

11 Sep

After work, I starting rummaging through the cabinets and drawers of the house in search for today’s bird inspiration. What I finally found, was some tissue paper left from a gift bag. I just liked the fragile quality of the transparent tissue. I started off experimenting with some watercolor paints. But what I liked was unexpected. I liked the wet paper edges that started to look like a wet sheet. And that lead me to I take a wet sponge and push this interesting effect across the tissue paper. What started off in one direction, lead me to a surprise ending for today’s Bird-A-Day art. Enjoy.
