Bird print of my original painting “A Girl and Her Bird” which is a very mysterious painting.
About the painting A Girl and Her Bird Print: This is a print of the original painting of a girl and her bird in unseen danger. Do you see the danger lurking and hiding just waiting to pounce?! I love how the bird is in blissful unknowingness while the girl senses danger but is looking in the wrong direction. My first strokes of this painting were eyes of the bird and the nose of the girl. The painting all came together once I found them or rather they showed themselves to me.
As I paint this type of painting, I start with a white gesso’d substrate (surface I’m painting on) and use a brush with india ink to start painting random lines. I then allow the painting to basically paint itself. It morphs into a scene that I see and I pull out what wants to be seen. I never know what the final painting will look like until the piece tells me it’s finished. After the india ink, I paint mostly with metallic acrylics but also non metallic. The end result for the original is a shimmering beautiful piece that reminds me of a painted mosaic. The flatness of the india ink and the contrast of the shimmering metallic is something I like very much.
