Anyway, I enjoy putting a number of related images together in what I refer to as a "painted collage."
Here's my tribute to those hard working hens who keep us in eggs.
24" x 24" acrylic on board
This style of painting gives me the opportunity to play with my backgrounds and surfaces...and while I want the figures to move forward and backward with some depth, I don't have to position them in relation to a horizon line or worry over shadows always cast in the same direction. Another reason I have fun with this is that I can vary the sizes of my subjects and then, with color, move the viewer around and through the work. While the layout and composition are a challenge, this time I did not have to paint out any completed subjects.
I'll share a few details for closer viewing.
