I really enjoyed the musical love birds I put in to my cherry blossom painting last weekend, so I decided I wanted to do a series of paper/text-based love bird paintings ….I thought it would be fun to explore texture and various texts to make the love birds.
I bought a pack of 12×12 canvases so these are smaller than I have been working with, but a great size!
I have completed (I think) two pieces at this point, here is the progression.
First, backgrounds and 3D texture (branch made with modeling paste).
Then I sketched some poppies on the blue background while waiting for the modeling paste to dry. I don’t have pictures of each step but here are the “final” products….So far, I’m enjoying creating these love bird scenes.
