Morgue File Photo

watercolor-step 1

mixed media-step 2

Using watercolor paper I painted the sky, bird, roost and drip technique. (Step 1)
Next I added Japanese Rice Papers to accent the seagull white feathers and wooden roost.

To make sure the rice paper did not peel off I gazed it with Acrylic Glazing Liquid. Off to the porch to photograph my newest creation.

Think I will try it oils or acrylics just  for fun.

I am always on the search for photos that appeal to my sense of artistic style. Somehow while deep in the rabbit hole of the computer I discovered where anyone can use a photo as a basis to create their own art work without copy right infringements.
