Bluebird With Clematis Painting on Birch Wood Slice


This is a painting of a perky blue bird perched on a stump that has clematis vines growing around it. The painting is done on a slice of Montana birch that is kiln dried and has it's natural bark on the outside edge. I lay down a pastel background and spray it with a workable fixative. I then work the bird and other objects in Prismacolor pencil which is a wax based binder pencil. I can burnish and layer to get the feathers and other textures I want to portray. When the painting is complete, I spray it with several coats of clear matte acrylic sealer to protect it. This painting is @ 8" in diameter and has a saw tooth hanger on the back.
