My blog discusses a variety of ideas and methods of creating colorful art. I like to share new methods of painting or making interesting artistic pieces which I am always searching for. I enjoy using different mediums and painting various subjects as you can probably tell when looking at my website. Although I do not write a blog on a daily basis, I write my blog when I feel there is something interesting or new that other artists would like to know.

Ibis Paintings

| 15 June, 2018 16:26

The white ibis with his curved orange/red beak and long lengs is really fun to paint.  The red/orange color  against the bird's white feathers is a dramatic contrast.  They are usually found in groups so I try to create paintings with two or more ibis.  You can paint them in the surf, at the beach, in a park with green vegetation, or flying.  Just be careful to choose a palette that will create a painting with colors that go well with the birds' red/orange legs and beaks.

This is my most recent ibis painting with a limited palette of lemon yellow, quinacridone crimson, burnt sienna, cerulean blue, and payne's gray.
