Kelly - Painting 90

Watercolor and Acrylic
9x12 Arches Rough 140 Lb Paper

Painting 90 is of a funky Henslow's Sparrow. He started as a watercolor, but then I laid heavy acrylics over the top. A day later I bunched up cheesecloth and put it all around the bird and painted it blue and white (sort of gluing it down to the paper)...then ripped off the cheesecloth so just part of the blue stayed behind (and small bits of cheesecloth here and there). It sort of has a summer memory feel--all under the art direction of my 15-yr old son because we just wanted to experiment.
