Kelly - Paintings 9 -12
These paintings all fall under "economy of brush strokes." I wanted to see how few strokes and how little detail was needed to capture the feel of the bird (I used no pencil marks either...just worked with the paint brush). I started with the wren and worked my way up. By the time I got to the chickadee I found I didn't need many brush strokes at all to come up with a likeness...(check out the date on the paintings....I wrote 1-2011...that's so me....darn! At least I got the month right!).
