Abstract Chicken Painting
Using splashes of inks, liquid acrylics and metallic paint, this free-style painting is done on board. It has transparent inks and paint, as well as thicker areas of full-bodied acrylic paint.
This was one of those paintings that just emerged with each splash of paint! I had decided that I wanted to do a painting of a chicken on top of another painting that just wasn't working. I loved the transparencies that were already happening with the liquid acrylics and inks, and I wanted to keep as much of that spontaneity as possible. But, I also knew that I had to go in a new direction and commit to a background and foreground. Committing is always the hardest part for me, because a painting can go so many ways! After turning it every which way, Godzilla chicken was up and running.
