30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day Two

"Ask for the Moon"
This painting is size 11" x 11" image and sells for $195.  I'm trying to get ahead so that on busy days, I'll have an already completed painting.  This painting was supposed to be a quickie, but it ended up taking 6 hours to complete.  I started by randomly placing collage papers on Arches Cold Press paper.  Then I drew the birds and negative painted around them, using acrylics.  This type of painting is much more comfortable for me than yesterday's painting. I don't like doing detail on the subject matter, as a rule.

  8. Karen , I love both day one and two. I am addicted to what we "learned" at the Duluth workshop. I thought I would remember how to do it, but I think you warned us about that and suggested we keep practicing. I will use January to do it. Love the collage elements in your day two painting. Look forward to a future workshop with you.
