Angela Moulton has a thing for birds. She paints hundreds of them. I like her other paintings too, but I really love the birds.
I spend some time scrolling through Pinterest looking for interesting techniques, photos, or some inspiration from time to time.
I ran across Angela on Pinterest. Her little bird paintings caught my eye.
I started watching some of her videos to see if I could work out how she does what she does.
She makes bold strokes and leaves them where they go down. There’s no fudging, smudging, or blending involved. Just, pick a color and lay it down. The resulting style is one that is playful and eye-catching.
This style lends itself well to acrylic painting and oil painting as well. I like the freedom and decisiveness need to make this work.
If you haven’t guessed it yet, I would recommend checking out her paintings. I hope the bright colors and freedom catch you as it did mine.
You can find her in several places on the Internet, so have at it.
