Bird Boy

Another new painting! The texture of this piece is very dense and bumpy up close. I have used acrylics and ink with a lot of gel medium to achieve a translucent feeling. It is painted on a piece of unusual handmade paper that has an uneven deckle all around. I wanted to paint a face and this character showed up.......with his pet bird. You never know who is going to show up around here!
