I had a water bird fly into my backyard, a couple of weeks ago, to take shelter during some strong winds. It was a heron with the usual grey feathers. Though it had a hint of a pink hue towards the ends. It was a curious bird that came right up to me only 3 feet away. I was lucky enough to capture some photos for inspiration and here I created. I started with grey in mind, but wanted to express the excitement of the experience. I created a strong pink resin mix to express a pink sky reflection on the bird's wings.
I used a specific high quality canvas with environmentally sustainable pine backing. This canvas allows me to create realistic and detailed charcoal art pieces. My unique process of applying charcoal to canvas to create photorealistic art is done through the use of various paint and makeup brushes cut to shape. I seal all pieces with charcoal fixative and acrylic fixative. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
