Great Heron, Acrylic on Wallpaper
I had a book of vinyl coated wallpaper samples and liked the texture in some of them, so I started experimenting.
The "brush strokes" in the background are in the paper.
For this painting I made a wash for the sky and then poured some colors of acrylic and blew it around a bit using a straw to create the tangles of roots at the bottom.
I then added other colors of berries and leaves.
Finally I painted the birds which got all the details.
I am happy with the results.
