Original. Black and White tonal painting. Acrylic on canvas.
Created by combining loose spontaneous mark making with the more precisely painted image of a ring-necked pheasant showcasing it's beautiful round body and impressive wings and tail. The two layers merge in places and being of the same shades they suggest movement and mood, bold and gutsy yet also delicate and vulnerable. But that's just my take!
Working with just two colours of paint was a challenge for me as I usually work in full blown colour. The challenge was for an art society meeting and so I hid away my colours, thrust myself in to a black and white piece and was delighted with the results and response and have now done several in this series.
This is a boxed gallery style canvas so ready to hang as it is. I hope it brings joy to someone's home.
