Just playing in my art journal. This little birdie is painted in gouache on a background of acrylic paints with some collage, stamping, stenciling…your basic mixed-media mishmash. I don’t think the berries are quite done, but I just love how the bird came out. I used a photo from the Oct/Nov 2016 issue of Birds&Blooms magazine as my model.
What do you think? Any advice for finishing the berries?
