A Girl and a Bird Art Journal Painting

In this painting, a purple haired girl is making a new friend, a little red bird.

The prompt for this art journal painting was paint like an 8 year old. So in that child-like mindset, I began by limiting my palette of colours. I kept the brush strokes loose and strove to not over-do details. I also limited my time to keep the painting from becoming overworked.

For her face I layered colours, keeping it loose and raw. Like an eight year old, I kept it simple and straightforward. And had fun in the process.
