I'm experimenting with a sparser paint application these days, allowing the casein paint to be thinner, in exchange for a brushstroke that feels more lyrical.
One of my favorite subjects is the little Marsh Wren. They are so animated and busy. Willing to come up so close without fear.

This one just took off into a different place.
This painting is part of a series of 100 experimental pigeon paintings with casein paint and colored inks. Sometimes it helps to repeat the same subject matter in order to explore the possibilities around that subject. By keeping the pigeons the same for each painting I am able to focus on brushwork ideas and color ideas. In a way, the narrow parameter sets me free to try things and challenges me to surprise myself.
This is an original painting on paper with matt and protective plastic sleeve.

This painting was done from a photo I took during one of my daily dog walks. The uneven farm roads and the view of passing weather patterns, the pastoral smells provide great comfort to a man and his dog.
