a quick post
Hello, welcome back. Perhaps you have heard of Charley Harper and perhaps you have seen some of his amazing work, including his beautiful screen printed birds seen here. I love the simplified shapes, the color palette - so much about his work to be admired. I also just found a short interview with him here.
Anyway, as i sit in awe of his work - i recently decided to do a bird of my own. A 'new' friend who is visiting Australia was having a birthday - so i thought a painting of a Kookaburra (native Aussie bird) would be a good idea. While not using screen printing or for one moment professing to be in the same league as Mr Harper, I quite liked my result...
