3 amigos

Here are the first 3 amigos in my city pigeon series for the FRONT Gallery.

I’m at work today on this lovely Saturday so figured I’d at least start on these fellas. I love working on birch panels- they allow a plethora of play and suit my mixed media applications as they’re tough, sturdy supports but  lightweight and provide their own design in the wood-grain itself. I get such a slightly smooth-sandpapery satisfied feeling in my fingertips running a pencil over the surface, making my marks. Tomorrow… paint!
