At some point in my journey to becoming an artist, I have gained enough confidence that I am finding that I am becoming more comfortable with the idea of painting in front of others and actually enjoy the challenge. The gallery that I belong to is an excellent place for a group of us to get together and let the creative juices flow. This week CHICKENS were the main object of my friend Anna Norris and I's attention.
Anna paints in a style that is so bold and thick and I am always amazed at her work. She has been painting for years and has a colorful impressionistic style that I just love. I thought she had actually finished her chicken that day but she completely transformed it when she got home later and I think she nailed it with this one. I have attached her feathered creation below for your viewing pleasure. To see more of Anna's work you can check out her website at http://www.annanorrisfineart.com
Now at this stage my piece is only about half way finished I would say. I paint with attention to more detail and have decided to include the background fence and foliage to the composition.
I believe if you are interested in taking your painting to the next level it is very beneficial to find a group of fellow artists to paint with, spend time with and just enjoy the creative synergy that will undoubtedly follow.
