Description

This painting is from my imagination
" Birds in a rain forest" is a lovely, unusual coloured, and
interesting painting to me
It looks simple with a slight primitive or naive look and feel
but it's simple look can be deceiving as this painting went through
quite a few processes before it was completed.
I started out by doing a paint pour over the canvas
when that was dry, I painted over the pour
I then added small amounts of real copper powder to
highlight certain areas of the forest and to try to give the impression of
dappled light
I was very happy how this painting turned out in the end,
as it was an experimental work to me. The birds have
a lot of cheeky character in their simple forms and eyes,
and they look rather comical ,which I like very much.
I just went with the flow of what was coming up and enjoyed the process
I felt as if I could fly in a forest with these sweet and funny birds
Australian parrots can be extremely funny birds anyway
so I think I have managed to capture some of their character here.

ENJOY !
