I think I’m going to have to add some shading to the path before I declare this one absolutely done, but for now here it is – lush.
“Lush”, acrylic painting on canvas paper, about the size of an A4.
Below are some progress shots. About the previous painting – I started off with just one deer but then I felt like I just couldn’t leave him alone there, my heart was with him after all. And slowly the scene turned more blossomy, more spring-like, because they have an emotional bond even if they’re not touching. And today’s painting, I decided to include a semi-transparent parrot figure as one of the focal points, to give it an extra dimension. I didn’t know where it was going at first, all I could think was “trees, must have trees”.
I was painting them more or less simultaneously, painting on one while I was figuring out the other.
