The Bird Lady

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a painting I started working on last summer, It has been one of those unfinished projects since then.I absolutely adore the whole concept of venetian masks, drapes, tapestries and bird cages, but putting that into practice was horrible. Don't try to paint intricate wallpaper if you're not extremely patient! I stopped enjoying it sometime after 20 hours I think.Finally got it done though, I pulled a couple of all-nighters with a truckload of coffee and my longest spotify-playlist on repeat. Kinda cool, actually. I got so wrapped up in it that before I knew it it was 5 AM and my legs were cramping due to all the standing up, haha!I have no idea how long it took me all in all, but those patterns and textures took me quite some time. Not to mention the stupid cage. Painting straight cage-bars on free hand? Overambitious!It measures about 65x95 centimeters, I think.
