Your attention to detail is absolutely inspiring. The skeletel structure of his wings is so meticulately executed -- and I love the subtle detail of blood dripping from them. And his wound? So well done and convincing.
You never fail to make an impact in the way you compose your pieces, I love the delicate pink flowers. I love how they adorn the piece -- it offers fantastic contrast. (Not common do you see images of men with gashes on their arms decorated with BEAUTIFUL pink flowers)
The pink looks so amazing here, but I'm not sure where this piece would be without the burst of blue down below! And last, but certainly not least, I have ALWAYS enjoyed the way you painted his hand as if against glass or some sort of surface.
I was listening to the song that inspired this painting in the car... and because of our amazing sound system, and the closeness of the space, I heard aspects to the music that I never had before. It made me REALLY want to revisit this in oils... and I also realised that there was a key element missing... I thought it would be perfect if the seagull's eye were turned -this- way, towards the viewer.
ooo in your car, i can imagine...YES! i'm sort of picturing him turned three quarter view, hunched, hand in the viewer's face the same way, but because of the angle he's almost thrusting the seagull up, out and toward the viewer as well, causing them to lock eyes.
