Bird on the Wing, 11 x 8, Original Watercolor, ready to hang on an Eco-friendly mount
Notice the layers of overlapping grasses. The perfect habitat for the creatures this bird is hunting.
This painting is mounted on a double layer of corrugated plastic (mostly likely a reclaimed election yard sign). The edges are covered with white tape for a clean look. The plastic is cut slightly smaller than the painting, so that it is not visible when viewing the front. Each painting is wired and ready to hang. Please see the sample photo, this is what the back of your painting may look like.
The result is a clean contemporary look that is extremely light weight. It can hang many places a traditional piece can not, or it is sturdy enough to sit on a shelf. The surface is treated to protect the painting. You can hang it as it is, or you may wish to have it framed. If you decide to have it framed you do not need glass to protect the painting.
Illuminating and Ultimate Grey
When I first considered painting with the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year, I was not initially inspired. However, sometimes my creativity gets a boost from a limitation. I did a few of my favorite motifs using the combo and then I was hooked!
What I love most is mixing my own Gray. In the video you can see the color puddle dried on my pallet. It looks like blue and an orangish color. You see me wet them, mix them together, and the gray that results. That is just half the story. As the paint dries, the colors “fall apart” again. The full color reads gray, but sometimes there is evidence of the 2 colors (actually 3) that were combined. Look closely to see this characteristic that only watercolor offers.
