"Bird's Eye View" acrylic painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Bird's Eye View", 16 x 16" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas

More playing with layering acrylics using Golden's Open Acrylics to slow the drying time down.  I did the background and then painted a raven in flight on top using a stencil I cut. Then I decided to add the clouds as it looked like the bird is in the sky looking down on the earth from way above. Such fun!!! Not the greatest photo as it is 16x16" on gallery wrap canvas -had to take the photo against the window and it is not great sunlight this deep into the winter so you can see the texture of the canvas. I will take a better picture, which I am happy to send you if you are interested. Hope to get more time to paint tomorrow!

It's a wonderful pic as is and fabulous painting. Is it giclée? Where are you getting them done? Are you selling them instead of originals now?

Hi M: it is an original, not a giclee. Thanks for the kind compliment on my art, I really appreciate it!
