Well, this is surprising! I painted something!
Yes, it is a shock to me... I haven't done a flat painting in years. I used to paint model horses, but hadn't even done any of that in at least a year. I got a beginners kit of Gouache paints a few months ago, but was too chicken to try them out. On a whim the other day, I printed off a copy of my Baltimore Oriole, and proceeded to paint on it. This is the result. I started with the orange breast, and ended up with a more "abstract" look than I expected, but I find I rather like it!
I'm not sure what this would be considered, the drawing was originally mine, but I painted over a copy of it, but whatever it's to be called, it was FUN!
Hmm... Should have added more orange on the bottom of the belly... Maybe I'll do that later...
