I have just been painting behind my studio listening to the sounds of various birds. There are some bird calls I recognize , but there are many others, such as the one that inspired me ,that I don’t know. This is fine as I was taken in by the solitude and beauty of the moment. The weather contributed to the feelings as it was cool and cloudy with a soft breeze. I know Fall is approaching here in the Carolinas.
The painting was done using a combination of acrylic inks and watercolors. I used the layering technique and as I poured each layer, I scraped the paint with a credit card and made circles and squares. Later I added some slanted lines with the side of a credit card and made the circles with the bottoms of paint tubes. One never knows what they can create. I had just done some paintings that I didn’t like and decided to try something relatively new. Each day at the studio is a surprise.
