The Gathering of Birds

I love birds. When it's warmer outside I love to sit with a cup of tea Sunday mornings and listen to all the birds.  Stencils with birds I gravitate to all the time.

For this Yupo painting I used a new stencil from The Crafters Workshop called Bird Gathering


The Crafter's Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.


I used heavy weight Yupo this time and I love it. I used TCW modeling paste on it with lots of paints.  Here is what it looked like before I changed it completely. 

I love the way the birds seem to disappear into the background but my hands and heart were going for something else.


So I added more birds and paint and changed the feel of the painting.  Here is the bird from the picture above.



I added more texture to the background which made it look like swirls of wind or something like that. I also started to like the light shade and added more white. 


Here's the final piece.


I can't wait to get this one framed.
Although I want to start selling my art I keep falling in love with it.
Do you have that problem too?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
