PPF 34: What the Flock?

Well I know that title sounds inappropriate...till you see the PiecE in Progress...


It's a "paint out" of a previous piece that took me forever...yet just didn't jive...
Solution:  Gesso all or paint out

I LOVE doing "paint out's" and had put so much detail into the original,  I couldn't resist experimenting...

I can't find a picture of the original that I took...however...I'm carrying on...
Still pondering over outlining and adding text....what do you think?
And P.S. Multi tasking on last weeks peek too!

Join me On PPF!!!

  6. Your birds are fabulous on the teal! I have done that on canvases before when they just don't work and I have not regretted it yet. You've got such great texture on the background!

  9. What a cool technique! I have a few questionable paintings I'd like to try that with! The colors are fantastic - I love the combination of red and teal. Each time I look at your painting, I find new details. I think a bit of outline/accenting is a good idea...maybe with a charcoal pencil? Fantastic work! Hugs, Terri

  12. Wait a minute. Are you saying you took an old painting (the one with lots of red) and then painted the blue over it to leave bird shapes? I love it even more!!!

  17. You took a big chance I think, and it paid off! You got a great result. Beautiful! I would find that very hard to do..unless I did it digitally. And I found it hard to do digitally.
    Well done!!

  18. This is brilliant, what a great way to salvage a painting that wasn't working for you.

  19. OOOOH! That's awesome! AND I totally get you - I spent 4 whole days working on a piece last week that I decided I just hated. But what you did took so much courage - and the results are already so cool - love the eye peeking out of the flock ;)
    Bravo, xo
    PS So sorry for taking so long to respond, I had some Google troubles :)
