Acrylics painting "Sunlight & Shadow"

Woodpigeons are not one of my favourite species to be honest, but I saw a pair from my studio and just felt inspired. With lots of illustration work coming up, I felt justified in giving my creative side full reign in the meantime. In this painting I wanted a sense of sunlight, shadows and blossom glimpsed through branches.

I started off in a really abstract way, by covering a primed board in acrylics (five colours) using painting knife, sponge, fingers and (just occasionally) brushes. I much prefer this “evolution” method. There’s more creative decision making involved, more freedom and hopefully a more interesting result.

If you look at the acrylics page on this website you’ll see several paintings that used this method – Squacco Heron, Flitting Through, Steamer Duck, Little Crake, Sika Encounter – mostly the paintings that explore the species’ relationship with their habitat.
