NEW: Silk scarves with this motif available! The original oil painting has been painted in layers of oil and art resin on a 24x36 wood panel. 'Bushfire' is part of my new 'Helos' series. The series features very dynamic, large-format contemporary bird portraits. Blending detailed realism and bold brush strokes these 3-4 foot canvases make a strong statement. The first paintings in this style originated during the spring lockdown, when I specifically enjoyed the many birds buzzing outside my studio in the pines. I aimed to capture the grace, movement and spirit of these birds by using different techniques to add layers. Some of my Helos style paintings (incl. hummingbirds, cardinals, owls, and even horses) are painted traditionally in oil on canvas, some are layered paint in various coats of art resin, and some are even painted on multiple acrylic layers mounted on top of each other. (side note: one of the latest offshoots of this effort are my new, unusual hummingbird sculptures).
My resident hummingbirds had been my subject for a while, and reached quite some popularity in the shape of little 4x4 canvas cubes. But after the inspiring 3 month stay at the Fine Art Expo, surrounded by and working alongside 100 diverse artists daily, it was time to translate the characters of the tiny but fierce friends to a new level.
To yield a result that would not lose its fresh brush strokes, but at the same time satisfy my wish for detail, I took some time experimenting. Back in my own studio in covid lockdown, and with a new generation of hummingbirds buzzing through my garden, I had the perfect opportunity for that. Big bold all prima brush work went in hand with layering and alternated with small details.
The result seems to combine different aspects of my own character and temper, and the progress is a highly satisfying dance at the easel with a very vibrant palette.
