Im'e All Ears
Im,e all ears
I saw this in one of my painting reference books and I had to paint it. It is acrylic painted on 12x16 on masonite board. I thought it would be interesting to try and paint those eyes and the roses etc. It was a challenge to achieve the various textures.
If I had to do it again I would try to have some softer edges on the bird and a little more realism to my leaves. Otherwise I just love it and many people want this but I cannot bring myself to give it up.
