I had every intention to go the studio and work on the garnet pitta – but as soon as a I woke up (for the second time) and I had a lovely low grade migraine and my eyes would not stay focused, so I stayed in a dark room the whole day. I learned a very valuable lesson though – a cocktail is a REALLY REALLY REALLY bad idea with a migraine. I do not get migraines often, so I just rode it out – though should have taken something.
So I finally got started on this bird today. I think I made fairly good progress on it and I am happy with the work I’ve made so far. There are so many small feathers! So this was my view for 2 hours – my empty desk.
So here is the final product – it is about 5″ round. I think it turned out very well and very much like the original design I came up with back when I was in High School. It is a simpler piece in comparison to some others, but I thought the detail of the eye was pretty cool. This is nine layers and is about the size of quarter.
