Funky Bird, using charcoal powder
This painting started with a charcoal pour. This process is discussed in the Virginia Cobb book, Discovering the Inner Eye, Experiments in Watermedia. It is available for $150, unframed. Image size: 11" x 11". I love the texture that the charcoal creates. Then I added fun by collaging the feathers, using all kinds of busy collage papers. My home studio workshop went fantastic. By limiting the students to only 10, we all got to know each other so well, and there was lots of individual help. Their paintings were so beautiful! I'm definitely painting lots more birds in the future. They are so fun, when they are whimsical!
