Neil HamelinAFC Painting realism, with texture and history
Making A Nest A Home
Subject: birds Dimensions (inches): 30 x 20 x 1 Medium: Oil On Board Description: This painting captures an early morning moment of these two little visitors that have flown in through the window. There is a peaceful quietness to this moment that has been captured through the use of cooler and subdued values, bringing in touch's of colour on the Common Yellowthroat's that is echoed throughout the peeling paint on the door. Bob Marley's song 'Three Little Birds' (though I only chose two) kept going on in my head while painting this one and I think it captures the feeling perfectly: Rise up this mornin', Smiled with the risin' sun, Three little birds Pitch by my doorstep Singin' sweet songs Of melodies pure and true, Sayin', This is my message to you Don't worry 'bout a thing, Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
