Mixed Media Monday "eyes" challenge


This painting is inspired by Violette an American artist. Collaged paper and paint background. I think my shading is getting better as the painting doesnt look too flat. I have added a bit of blue paint to the blackbird to lift it a little. The words read "and down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose". Really enjoy painting at the moment and want to paint all the time!!

Oh MY, snipped off her nose, maybe better than pecking out her eyes :) Wonderful painting Lorraine!

I've seen the one by Violette. You've managed to put your personal stamp on this piece inspired by hers! Good work.
