Acrylic & Ink on 9" x 5" board
I'd love to know more about how this piece was put together! It looks almost like it could pop off the page! I reckon that it was a mixture of different kinds of medium to get the effect. Parts of the bird look practically golden and it would be amazing if the metallic effect was indeed created from something metallic!
The fine details of the background are intricately emphasized and they are my favourite part of this portrait. The bird is able to stand strong up front with the stunning contrast created behind. Without both elements together, this portrait wouldn’t have happened.
