Day 3 Slate Piece - Cedar Waxwing
acrylic on Vermont slate 11"x14"
Fun things about painting on slate include the background texture and colors. I like how the paint grips the surface, which is so different from painting with oils on a slick panel. I don't even consider painting the background, rather, it is about painting objects on the surface. This Cedar Waxwing, displaying it's full colors in all their glory, was a great subject.
