Bird, Bottle, Egg, 6" x 6"
I'm going to tweet, I mean tweak the bird a bit, but since it's been awhile since I've posted a painting, (they're drying, really!), I thought I should introduce this one. It was a bit of a challenge to capture the objects against the dusk. Here I had two lighting effects: cool, outdoor snow and dusk, with warm, indoor, incandescent lighting. I'd like to try a warmer, brighter white on the bird and see if it's more what I had in mind. So, do come again and see what happens. In the meantime your comments and technical suggestions are welcome. I think of this painting as an experiment. Back to the laboratory!
