This has been a very fun theme and project for me as I am jumping back into Creative Tuesday with all heart, new supplies, new motivation and attitude.
The theme is "LITTLE TWITTERS". You could go in many different directions with a "BIRD" theme. Since I have always been a fast, loose painter I decided to pace myself, take several days and paint with purpose and detail.
I went to the Library last week and checked out a book on Birds. I decided to do several different ones, and really try to get every detail as close as I could.
Sometimes I transfer what I want to paint, but since this feels like new beginnings....I free sketched first in pencil, and then painted each bird slowly, adding layers and details.
If you are wondering about the "Rusty Oil Can" at the bottom of the painting, that's the way I felt as I put the first stroke on the paper. I'm really Rusty... and I could feel it.
But as I finished the first bird....new excitement and energy came and that old passion was back. Again I want to thank Laurie for her words of encouragement. It was that little "spark" that got my fire going.
Can't wait to see what the theme will be next time.
