Hey Happy Campers!
Meet "Fanny Feathers" robin painted on a 5x7" canvas panel. I will be adding a wire and couple of beads for it to hang from. You may notice the little holes I drilled at the top of the panel.
MATERIALS: 5x7" canvas panel, Liquitex heavy body professional paint, small brushes and a small palette knife.
PRO TIP: Thought you might like to see my palette so I put paint on an 8" styrofoam plate. I mist it with water on occasion to keep the paints from drying out AND it will fit in a large gallon zip lock plastic bag to keep the paints fresh for a day or two. Really nice if you mix a complicated color. Not necessary for the colors in the robin.
The black outline of the robin is created with a charcoal pencil. If you watch closely, I use a kneaded eraser to lighten the charcoal before I paint an area. That way the paints do not get muddied by the charcoal, especially the whites.
