Newest mini: “Bird on a Fence” (2.25 x 3.5 inches), acrylic on paperboard. I love painting wood and texture and this old barn was a lot of fun. The tiny bird on the fencepost was less fun and a bit more tricky!
When painting a bird this small (just a few millimeters), the goal is really to capture the essence and presence with just a few brush strokes as the extremely small area does not allow for much reworking, without distorting the image. Painting these little details can be trying sometimes but they always present a good challenge.
This little painting is available at Excellent Frameworks in Duncan BC.
