The Diver Details

5 x 7 Acrylic on Panel – $575.00

Some paintings come about from an interest in the subject’s behavior, or from a particular moment in time. This painting was inspired by the color combinations of the tropical, sunlit water, against the birds plumage.

As I moved along with this little piece, though, I also really ended up enjoying the textural variations between the plumage on the bird’s head, the wrinkled bill, and the larger feathers of the body. I decided to de-emphasized any background information at that point, and the resulting field of blue-green helped to keep the eye focused on the textures of the bird.
