29.7cm x 21cm.
Acrylic on artboard.
Part of the Feathers series, inspired by the movement, magic and mystery of mythical and exotic birds. Each abstract piece evokes the sense and mood of each creature and its story, rather than being representational.
For some cultures, the bluebird is a muse. For others, it wards off the spirit of winter. For me, these blue feathers representation a state of tranquillity and calm about the future and what lies ahead.
Multiple layers of acrylic paint and gel mediums - and various shaping, brushwork and palette techniques - have been applied to create different textures that reflect light. This mimics the iridescent and light reflective quality of feathers - and how they can shimmer and change colour under different light.
Each comes in a 16 x 12 inch (30.48 x 40.64 cm) acid-free ice-white mount, with a backing board and plastic sleeve. Frames shown are for illustration only.
Each one signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
