|"Chickadees, Chess, Checkmate" LWatry©2014|
The chess set is a huge human size set from a photo I took on vacation. So, I have shrunk it down to work with the chickadees. I decided to try Quinacridone Burnt Orange for the main color in the brown pieces and I loved working with it. It is a very vibrant color and I didn't have to do many layers because of that.
I chose to have the background be a bright blue and some of the blue reflects into the lighter areas of the chess pieces.
The chickadee that is flying adds a bit of motion to an otherwise static scene.
