Studio Images : The Collector May 22, 2019 Amy Kollar Anderson The Collector: 12” x 12” : acrylic on panel : Available The background is several layers of acrylic and Pouring Medium. Adding layers of feathers the bird. Blocking out the crazy quilting on the branches. Adding patterns to the branch blocks. The patterns are placed on top of another layer of Pouring Medium, so they float. At this point I was thinking maybe it was finished, but the more I looked at it, it felt kinda flat. I decided to contrast the orange of the bird with a bright blue. Better. Then a layer of chartreuse brush strokes and petal strokes. Better, but it did not feel balanced. So I added another layer in the bottom area. Detail of finished bird. Detail of finished piece. Finished painting.
