Challenge 78 Bird of Paradise


Artist: Shirley Bond
Medium: acrylic
Size: 10 x 8 inches

Difficult painting for me but it was my own fault. I had been using watercolors for so long I had almost forgotten how to blend and use acrylics. The painting ended up almost as an abstract!

  1. Pas mal du tout Shirley! Tu as saisi l’essentiel.

  2. You caught the moody nature of this reference piece

  3. Thank you. I found the whole original photo rather “moody” and certainly different than the usual bird of paradise photos I have seen.

  4. I like the abstract quality you achieved. It fits the subject.

  5. Thanks Penny. It a very “abstract looking ‘ flower, isn’t it !!
