Red Eagle

Red Eagle

This is an acrylic on paper image that measures 10"x14".

The image started from a random application of watery acrylics. Later a grid patterns was laid over the background and the result was studied to see what imagery was there. Then using more opaque acrylic paints the image was teased out of the background to define the eagle.

The whole process was based on the idea of starting without an intention in mind and letting the process of creating dictate the next steps. There is a great sense of freedom to this type of work.
