Millicent The Mantis

When questioned about her husband's whereabouts, Millicent became evasive. 

If you are like me, creating brings you joy. These days I get a special kick out of painting sassy birds and animals. To me, the best part of the process is building the design with layers of negative shapes. I figure that if you fit the right shapes together, you will have a bird... or maybe some other beastly character! I begin with a basic plan and then react to what’s happening on the canvas as the design and story evolves.

If you are interested in seeing the development of Millicent The Mantis And Her Missing Husband, I’ve put together a quick step-by-step video. If you watch closely, you will see that I began with three birds and then changed my mind.

I will be teaching my approach online on April 12 - 14, 2023 for Cheap Joe's Art Stuff.
