My process for this piece was to start the canvas with expressive strokes of acrylic paint and add in drips of fluid acrylic. Over this I sprayed through stencils and lace and then used a mask to protect the area for the bird whilst adding translucent layers of acrylic in an impasto way that gives the piece a lot of textural interest. I used matt acrylic to prepare the canvas for the Inktense pencil work which I layered to build up the painting of this original red kites art.
I took the reference photos for this painting myself on a trip to the Red Kite sanctuary in mid-Wales. It was feeding time and the spectacle of these beautiful birds swooping in for food was awesome.
