I have been playing around with some modeling paste,
canvas, acrylic paint, and colored pencil. When you have all the
stuff...why not use it? I love these white birds...paint
them all the time. I wanted to do some canvas pieces instead
The reference photo was taken at the egret rookery near
Alexandria. I textured the canvas with the modeling paste
first. After it was dry, I painted it with the tan colors and white.
Then I did the bird and branches, and added the last details with
some colored pencils. The design wraps all around the edges.
I like it...it is different for me! I am working on a second one..will
