Winter Cardinal 6"x6" acrylic

Winter Cardinal   6"x6" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas

This is the finished painting from the last post.  It is what I wanted to portray- a thicket of snow covered branches with a cardinal perched in it.

I used acrylics becauseI knew the painting was going to have many over lapping layers and seeing how acrylics dry within minutes I could do a few layers a night without worrying about disturbing the previous layer.

I like the gallery wrapped canvas  because you can continue the composition around all four sides of the canvas.  I  installed a metal hanger on the back so no framing is needed.
