This poor crow electrocuted himself on a poweline in Seattle. My buddy Ryan knows I have a fondness for crows so he gave it to me. I have used it for reference a number of times and then pop it back in the freezer! Ryan’s electric crow has seen better days!
This is another painting with a lot of interesting textural depth. I built up heavy vertical lines with acrylic medium. It also has an undevrcoat of interference pearl that results in a dynamic lighting that you can pick up a bit of in this photograph.
This is a 6″x6″ painting I did last year. Yet another crow painting!
When I was photographing the Agrestic Macabre paintings there was some curiosity around their presence. I couldn’t resist the urge to take a cat/bird photo, it also puts their scale in perspective.
This is the third painting in the series, I will probably move onto other work but these were fun!
This is the second painting in a series of three. The paintings are 24″ x 30″.
I am continuing work on a series of paintings I started this year. The paintings are a bit of an experiment in technique, I am using acrylic paint on acrylic plexiglass. The slick surface of the plastic sheeting makes an excellent surface for subtle brush work and mark making. The flip side of the plexiglass is covered with layers of transparent textures that harmonize and compliment the painted image. The physical depth of these paintings alter the appearance as the lighting and angle of view shift.
