Circus Birds



My Circus Birds were created on 300 lb Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper with Holbein Acryla acrylic paints. My "collage glue" is gel medium. I also painted some Circus Birds on canvas - 12 x12 canvases from Cheap Joe's.



Demo of my "Circus Birds" at a very recent workshop in Upland, California at the Art Box Studio!
Watch the movie to see the technique. video

Thanks so much for the demo. My only regret - "Chill Out in Paris" wasn't playing in the background.

Crazy birds! I'm doing four 12x12" paintings of a wolf like husky dog in mixed media and you inspired me with some ideas for background parts. Thanks so much! Love your paintings and blog!

thanks for adding your paint to the post. I really like how they look. Every year Buy cialis chooses something to put in its box and I would like to see something similar.
