I work with paper, cutting, tearing, slicing, and layering to create a semi-realistic image. It creates a painting like quality until you get close and see that the texture, depth, light and shadow are developed through the layering, texture and choice of colored paper.
I was drawn to the drama of the wings in back and the tail feathers in front, with the brightness of the feathers. I found a paper that would have illuminances. Paper, gel medium, charcoal on canvas
