Notes on a Landscape: Spoonbills
Third in the “Notes…” series. The addition of the halos (are they halos or is there another name for this type?) elevate this image to a whole new level for me. Without them, the birds are just birds. With them, the viewer takes a moment of reflection—-what does this mean? should I be more reverent? should I be angry about this? why?—-the effect of which is interesting. And hey, what more can I ask for than interesting artwork. I added the painting process video below.
