Ok so into my paintings. These two paintings I did in freshman year, last year, Painting I. The assignment was to paint from a photo collage. I took a photograph I had taken of a beautiful dead bird on the sidewalk, doubled up the bird in the one image from two different angles, and then made a smaller piece that had three panels, well one and 2 halves really. I painted the two pieces at the same time going back and forth between the two to avoid varying color palettes and techniques, a method I had not tried until then, but now use often due to it's convenience when working with slow drying paint (oil). Below are some detail shots from the larger bird.
