Almost finished with Minority. It's been a really fun painting. It's been nice to focus on painting the birds. In a way it really doesn't feel that different from painting people, but the variation of the feathers and patterns has been a welcome departure. I also like the how the landing birds in the background give a sense of depth by not being painted in detail. There are a lot of elements in this painting that I need to implement into future work. I also realize I need to keep expanding what is deemed my subject matter. The urban environment in an unlimited source of material to paint from, but like most urban painters I focus on only a small part of it.
