Acrylic painting on canvas. Title taken from the lyrics of 'Good Fortune' by PJ Harvey , which also has the line;
I paint pictures
You're too beautiful
To put into words
Which i love, and i think helps sum up some of why i paint! Basically, I saw Cherise, who is a fellow artist and model, and knew i wanted to cover her in feathers and paint her as an exotic bird of paradise,basking in the light, surrounded by colour, so I did!! We met up, I photographed her last year for reference material (I'm not a speedy artist!) and this, and another painting, is the result. Enjoy!
