‘Spiralbird’ copyright 2012 by Shiloh Moore
11″ x 14″ Mixed Media on Canvas
I found some beautiful purple paper with silver scribbled sheet music on it, by Alison Ellis Design scrapbooking paper. I wanted to use it in a mixed media painting. I thought of using it with a bird so the music was bird song. I drew a simplified image of a bird and I imagined it with spirals coming up from the bottom.
I played around with pearlised coloured acrylic paints for the background. Then added some silver spots using bubblewrap. Then I glued on the scrapbooking paper. Then I drew on the outline of the bird and it looked like this:
Then I filled in the body with silver and it looked like this:
Then I drew on the spirals and Spiralbird was complete!
