Masked Trogon


I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I painted the above painting during my week off work. I really, really like it. Basically I wanted to take the idea I had in my previous post and take it to the next level. I wanted to limit my color palette to cool tones, focusing mostly on blues with a little bit of teal thrown in for warmth. I love how it turned out: a little bit funky and striking.

Update: This painting has SOLD!

Materials: 9 1/2 inch by 9 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch wood, acrylic paint, gesso.

I love this! Love the colors the most. You're moving outside the box and muting into beauty.

Where is the January art? Lame. I've seen all of this before.
