I got an easel and I think that it was a major game-changer. For this piece I drew the bluejay sketch first, then I did the background. This left a
slight 'aura' around the bird, which I attempted to correct by adding another layer to the background. Since I have no idea how to do backgrounds
well yet, I decided to focus on the subject and went with an abstract background. I will be getting a new brush to help me with blending for the next
While I still have to experiment more, I am pleased with my growth--and thankful for your advice on my last piece. I tried to take that advice and
apply it to this painting. As always, I am open to critiques--I want to keep learning! I really enjoy being creative and sharing my work with others.
Also, any requests for what I should try to paint next?
Have a great day, everyone!
