Notes of the day: I woke up this morning thinking, "I need to paint a bird on an artichoke!" I have no idea where that came from, although I have been meaning to get a bird painting in the mix and I did notice the artichokes at the store the other day when I was picking out my pears for day 2. Hmmmm, maybe I do know where that idea came from! And now I get to enjoy some yummy artichoke dipped in butter. Too bad nobody else likes it in my family. Lucky me!
On another note - you'll see that the final painting (shown above) has a little more work to it than what was demonstrated. After I stopped the video I realized I wanted to work on the legs of the bird a bit more which caused more peachy-yellow to spill out onto the top left of the painting - oops! I love how it turned out, though, and hope you do too!
