Birds in Flight

A sketch worked out quickly in the middle of a Thursday afternoon. The goal is to use only blues and greens and to use my new Tri-Art Arylide Yellow Light from Opus. So many new possibilities with just one more color!!!
Painting started at night while listening to Canada Live followed by The Signal on CBC Radio 2. Let's see the progress...
I wasn't too pleased with this dotty stage, I wanted the birds to stand out from the background. Today, with bravery at hand I mixed some orange and purple, added some solid lines and shadows. Voila! The birds are now flying over fields of greens like the one in this post. 24" x 12"
