Thankyou so much for your lovely comments about my beach baby painting! As I had some time left at the end of the day that I finished it, I decided to work some more on a painting that you might remember from last year? Do you remember this one?
I've had it hanging up on the wall at home and so each day it would catch my eye and after time, I knew I wasn't happy with the face on the yellow vase. I felt it looked unfinished and at first I was going to put more shading in it to give it depth. Something else happened once I had my paints out!
Not only did I change the face, I painted over it completely and added some birds and some more spots. (If you look closely you can see the masking fluid I put on around the edges of the vase so that I wouldn't ruin the background. I have a tendency to get paint all over the parts where I don't want it!) Once I'd changed the yellow vase, the purple one looked odd having a face so that face had to go too!
I didn't originally plan to change both vases but hey. I like it a lot better now. :)
Butterfly and Bird Vases, acrylic on canvas, 40 x 40cm (16 x 16inches)
I've made this image available to buy from Fine Art America, where you can order it as a print in a size of your choice, framed or unframed, on paper, canvas or metal or even as a greetings card or two!
The original painting is now available to buy here.
Thankyou for looking! xx
