I finished this painting yesterday and so uploaded it into my etsy account and various other places (I’m finding it hard to keep track of all the sites). his name is Jack and as you can tell (hopefully) he’s a budgie, initially he was going to be all blue, but well me being me I started adding touches of other colours and I like the effect so essentially he is bluish but with bits of purple, red and yellow. I get the sense that he’s curious about something over the left shoulder of the viewer but you can make up your own mind, I am very pleased with how he turned out as birds aren’t my subject of choice normally. But he has such a strong but unusual shape to him I couldn’t resist and the painting itself went through a bit of metamorphosis.
This painting ‘Curious Bird Perching’ was a little different subject wise to the others and I wanted to see what kind of effect it had, and well I was pretty surprised myself. Within about 20 mins of listing I got 16 hits on the original (fewer on the print), but of those I got 2 hearts for the painting itself and 4 for the shop!! Thats seems a little mad, but I’m not complaining. Plus, I have a few more bird canvases I’ve started, as I enjoyed creating Jack so much, the little elements of detail, his little eyes that seems to exude some kind of crazy intelligence…I feel very inspired again 🙂
So, a little later than originally promised, here is a photo of the canvas I mentioned before, that I’m selling as a print. It’s called ‘ The Glade at Midnight’ and it’s only just gone online! I have to say I’m pretty darn pleased with it, so much so I haven’t decided whether I’m going to sell the original yet. You can view it here in my Etsy shop.
I have been working on a series of new pieces of work, these last few days to launch in my filiadavidus shop on Etsy. Most of the pieces are working out the way I’d hoped, but inevitably there are some that just didn’t work. This is one of them, I’m not sure whether to sell this piece, perhaps I can work further digitally to get the look I’m after…mmmm or maybe I should just leave it? The problem with me is that I dislike having illustrations that are left, I feel I should be able to take something tangible away from it. Especially when it’s an image that I like aspects of, but not the whole image.
I don’t know, I think II’ll just throw it out there and see if I can get any feedback (click the image for a larger version) …
