After a trip to Mile Square Park, seeing the Canada geese up close, I decided to do a goose girl theme painting. The version I chose for my blog is painted with acrylic paint, Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna colors, thinned down for a washy effect, on a white gesso surface. The other version is watercolor with black pen outlines on watercolor paper.
I personally like the painterly effects and emotion of version 1. I’ve included a close-up of some of the birds. Enjoy!
