Black Birds and Black Berries


'Gluttony'

ACEO ( 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches)
(that is smaller than shown in the picture here!)

I took time out of jam - making today to work on this little miniature painting (couldn't resist painting fruit though!). I LOVE my new paints, the colour is beautifully saturated, and flows perfectly. I got rather bogged down in the detail on this, but it was lovely to be working again!
I fancy working on a set depicting the seven deadly sins, and there is a matching cat picture at the sketch stage. This one has just been put on sale here.

Oh, and I keep 'losing' blogs that I follow. Is this happening to anyone else?

Lovely picture. He looks as if he's enjoying those blackberries but eating them with more manners than our hens do :)

Another fabulous black bird! They're wonderful even in the midst of their sinfulness. :)

How funny, I was thinking of doing a painting almost exactly like this one! It must be because the crows and other birds are enjoying the hedgerows so much :)

I'll enjoy your picture instead, less work involved :)

ps, I've not lost any blogs! Do you mean the addresses have gone?

Danielle Barlow said...

Kim, It's ok, you can paint one too!

I mean't the updates were not on my dashboard, or on the sidebar in my blog where I would expect the updates to show!

Yarrow said...

I see, I don't have one of those, so I'm afraid I can't help you, sorry.

I may paint an itty bitty crow, but I do like yours :)
