Black Capped Chickadee's have always been one of my favorite birds. They have the most character and always seem to be energetic little bundles of energy. One of the main reasons I love them is that I feed the local flock by hand. Feeding them never gets old to me. When I was asked to do a commissioned work of a Black Capped I jumped at the chance. With a few composition and colour changes to the the reference I was give and I was off to the races.
In this tutorial we will learn how to work with a client to create a commission piece of work that both wow's the client and feeds our artistic juices. Learn how to take a photo reference from a collector and identify what makes the photo appealing to them, and incorporate those elements into the original. We will learn how to paint feather, wood textures and show texture, while also creating a subtle muted background that still has bunch. We will also learn how to take our painting and use photoshop to work finer details and composition reworks before committing those changes to board.
