Two Birds on a Wire - in progress

As I mentioned earlier today, Two Birds on a Wire, started with a gradient background of a gray/purple background to white. After sketching out the bird, something didn’t feel right.

I eventually decided on this black/gray background that almost takes on a metallic sheen. I worked with a brush but always find that my hand also works really well when spreading around paint. Since it’s acrylic it washes away easily.
