Parasaurolophus in Love ©2011
Medium: Acrylic Paints
Now that the Hadrosaur Gallery has gone up on ART Evolved, I can reveill the complete parasaurolophus piece! Be sure to visit the gallery for a metric ton of gorgeous duckbill art!
The point of this reconstruction was to keep my colour pallet to only one to two colours. As the emotion of this piece is love, I went with the traditional red tones for the critters. One of the biggest challenges I have in painting is that I tend to paint with bold, almost primary colours. A prime example is my Pterosaur family in their garish blue, orange and yellow.
I have recently bought James Gurney's book, Colour and Light, in an effort to teach myself better colour choice. I look forward to pouring through it when I can find the time, and hopefully you will see an evolution in my art.
Thanks for checking this piece out and if you have any critiques, please let me know in the comments section below.
