7 paintings 2 5 15

I worked on these seven paintings at the same time, letting the surface of one 'rest' while I fooled around with another. One is large, two medium and four small-ish.
I intended this one to be all big birds, but the cat insisted on being a part of it. Again, the cat and bird theme that showed up in the paintings from the last post. This time the birds got bigger, too. This painting is 20"X 26". It is primarily acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper, with charcoal, sewing pattern tissue, pastel, colored pencil, Bristol board, Yupo paper, and conte.
Two paintings exploring the same big bird shape. They are both acrylic and charcoal, with ink on Yupo paper, colored pencil on Bristol board and one reversed photo copy which is a salvaged segment from one of my Post Squares from last year. Both are 14"X 20"
The next four smaller paintings (each 8"X 12") are acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper with charcoal, pastel, some metallic leaf and, again, salvaged bits of those Post Square colored pencil drawings.
