I am using a blunt knife to paint this one ..with multiple strokes...coats..texture !!! Most of its body is done.. good so far.. but I got stuck in the feathers.. I think thats the most beautiful part and it has to look dimensional ..not like a flat print/painting..or something plastic..you know what I mean..
Got stressed and left the painting half way..To combat this I made a practice painting on a smaller canvas..
I painted it with several coats of greens, blues and golden color.. love the hint of gold when the light falls on it..It looks pretty hanging with other paintings in a block...
It is now available in my Etsy shop!! Check it out here!!
