Bird On A Bread Board

This was my first project using the acrylic gouache that I got for my birthday. It seems appropriate that I used them to create a birthday gift for the lovely Debra, since she was the one who gave me the paints in the first place. It's the circle of life, right?

I painted on an old wooden cutting board that I found in my basement. The surface looked so cool that I felt it would be a shame to cover the whole thing. I loved the paint, beautiful colors, easy to mix and manipulate. I've been told that the paint's surface is great to draw on too, I'll have to try that.

This isn't the best photo but it will have to do for now. I'll get a better image when I'm in the studio and post it later. Click it if you'd like a larger image.

Really cool, Patrick! I love seeing this painting style of yours. And that branching brush detail is perfection. (Didja give the piece to the lovely Debra yet? She'll be thrilled, I'm sure.) Hope you'll keep playing with the gouache, and keep sharing the results! Lovely.
