Quick pencil sketch for composition.
2011, acrylic on canvas paper, 9 x 12 in.
This painting was created as a gift for my friends Craig and Rhonwyn's wedding! With this year being the 150th anniversary of Archeopterxy's discovery, this early birds were the perfect subject. I have recently been experimenting with a more impressionist style using a more limited colour pallet. While I am really happy with the painting, I have still managed to use the primary colours - red, blue, yellow. Hmm, anyone have any suggestions on how to limit my pallet more effectively?
