Yesterday and this morning I made up my mind to finish the bird paintings. Originally I was going to leave the eggs looking very flat, but then I decided to add a little bit of depth by painting shadows and highlights. I used a very thin wash so that the fabric would still show through. I also decided that I like the vertical painting better horizontal. Don’t forget that you can click on the images to enlarge them!
I haven’t given the paintings a title yet. Any suggestions?
And now I begin the hard part again. Formulation of another idea. Because I will be showing all of my future summer paintings together with the birds, I don’t want to do anything too disjointed. It’s difficult because my ideas of late have been very scattered.
