Kelly - Paintings 38 - 41

I had to drop out of the challenge during the summer, but I was able to start painting again in late September, and now it's time to start posting again too. I have a lot of catching up to do, so I'm going to combine a lot of my paintings into small groups. This first group was inspired by my son, and they are all impressionistic. My son challenged me to paint in a different style and create something new and interesting, so these were experiments. It also was the first time I had ever used acrylics. I started with Golden's "Golden Open Acrylics," which I really liked. They are creamy and smooth and almost oil-like with a slower drying time.

Painting #38 - Winter Robin

Painting #39 - Northern Cardinal in Evening Snow

Painting #40 - Goldfinch in the Grass

Painting #41 - Autumn Chickadee

Such a colorful bunch of birds. #40 is my favorite, although the cardinal is a close second. Do keep them coming.
