I took up this art project to reinvigorate my practice, I have become stale in drawing the figure all the time. I wanted to work with paint for a while. Birds are one way to this, and I enjoy their colours and forms.
It was good to get back into painting after so many months just drawing only, using colour and texture, brush marks to create a expressive sketchy and loose result.
I set myself doing about 20 pieces in any medium and picked the ones I most enjoyed or was satisfied with the results. I could improve my work, I can do better, but I felt a sense of accomplishment after completing this project. I often don’t finish projects, but I ensured I did this time. That completion has taught me I can finish the tasks I set out to do, an important lesson. I will continue with more project-based artwork in future.
