Weekly Oil Paintings

Quick Gesture Bird (Middle 1)

Since the space has been divided, as also the placement of the bird, now I begin to think about a circular shape and a more refined tail. Some strokes of finer definition are added, always with the question…Can I make this stroke once only? The more strokes I make, the tighter my work becomes, so I aim at economy of brushstrokes to keep the image loose and free.

6×8″ oil paint on canvas paper; middle phase of the painting.
