Acrylic on Canvas
36" x 36"
Bird of Paradise and Hibiscus flowers flutter over this canvas. It just came off my easel, so it's time to begin another painting, and a commission it is. Another floral of birds and biscus, but this one is long and thin with horizontal format. The palette will be similar, the composition quite different.
I picked up the custom canvas about two weeks ago, so I have been staring at the blank whiteness of 20" x 62" wondering and planning the composition in my head. Last night I started sketches and plan to place three hibiscus close to center with the birds flying around out to the sides.
The selected sketch for composition.....more or less anyway.
Today I will under paint with black gesso and sketch the design on the canvas. Then tomorrow I will begin to loose myself in the wonder of applying paint to brush to canvas. These floral paintings are captivating for me with their stylized presentation just hinting at whimsy. I hope you are enjoying them as well.
