A chubby cardinal and blue skies.
About the work
This painting is special due to being my first real acrylic painting! It’s a free style work done on the top of a magnet that came already printed with line art. The line art was very plain and simple, so I did my own version instead of colouring inside the line. Originally, I did not intend for this little guy to be chubby. Rather, his fluff was incidental as I worked on keeping him realistically proportioned. Since this was printed on a magnetic canvas, it only measures about 3 x 3 inches.
The original work hangs in a private collection.
