‘Once you decide that it is the art that is important and not how popular and well-received you are, you no longer have an albatross.’
Stephen Stills, musician and instrumentalist. (Remember Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young?)


This was a fascinating process. My original idea had been to do this albatross, or Diomedea, from the Biodiversity Heritage Library in exactly the same manner as my Biodiversity bird collection but playing with textures wrought a very different result, as you can see.

I placed a first layer of plain yellow in Normal mode. The second layer is 2 Lil’ Owls’ Beguiling-22 texture in Colour Burn mode. I added Angie Makes’ bluewatercolor in Multiply mode and finally another 2 Lil’ Owls, Beguiling-18, in Linear Burn mode. The final touch was the albatross in Subtract mode. It may appear as if it was very simple but it wasn’t, of course, as I experimented endlessly with different blends.

Available at the following galleries:
Redbubble
Crated
Zazzle US
Zazzle UK
Fine Art America
Fine Art England
Saatchi Art

Take care and keep laughing!
