Birdland

Here are some bird images I painted on some pots today. I'm trying to include some within the botanical imagery. It's always a little difficult to get the confidence to do something different, but after a couple of days of painting, I felt that I was ready. It sounds a little funny, but it does take time to get into it, so to speak. Since I am painting wax resist, once it's on there there's no going back and wiping off, well I guess I could but time is short and the surface of the pot would be all scratched, and that's not pretty. I can scratch details into the waxed areas, but I'm really fooling myself thinking that will work. We'll see next week.







Kiln prep on Friday and more painting. Then it will be time for dipping the pots.
