I decided to start 2013 by participating in the Artists Helping Artists '30 paintings in 30 days' challenge. Today is the first day!
I woke up this morning absolutely certain that for today, I wanted a peacock. I've never done one before and part of the challenge is to experiment (: The other part of the challenge that I really like is to have fun! Now that is a challenge I can get behind!
I also wanted to experiment painting on different surfaces, so today's is sheet music.
|It amused me to choose "Bye Bye Blackbird" for my very blue green peacock (:|
|Then I roughed in my design.|
|Mixed my acrylics and started painting.|
|I mixed 2 blues and green to make the peacock and a transparent red with copper for the branches and 'frame'.|
|The finished 'Peacock'.|
I like the way this experiment turned out. I think I'm going seeing what comes of the next 30 days (:
A variety of prints, cards, skins, phone covers, tshirts, and totes are now available for purchase from society 6.
