Three birds
Acrylic on canvas board

I’m pretty stoked with this.

I possibly could have ruled the powerlines, but I was determined to do freehand—partly because I know the imperfections can add interest, but also because a little voice in the back of my head was saying, “real artists don’t use rulers”. I should have remembered this. In the end, for this particular picture, I think the imperfections are a bit of a distraction.

But I’m really pleased with the birds. And apart from the wobbly powerlines, which I still think are an interesting compositional element, I pretty much achieved what I wanted to.
