Day 1. Bringing the 5 ft x 5 ft canvas home from the store is a challenge. Set up and sketch day .
Day 2 begins with a background of browns and greens and yellows
Day 2 ends with body colors getting some traction. Wings take shape.
Day 3 begins with layers of interference paint.
Quills and eyes
Turquoise enamel paint and green/blue interference paint. What fun!
Layers of thick texture go in. Without this structural groundwork, it is feels like making this look 3-D is impossible.
All finished after 75 hours of painting every possible shade of color.
