Wool painting is featuring a handsome bullfinch perched on the snowy branch of a pine tree. My use of wintry shades of blue and white flakes of falling snow has fashioned a soft backdrop for the painting. The muted tones highlight the vivid coloring of the bird’s breast, as well as the blacks and grays of the head and wings. The pattern of the wool fibers beneath and around the bullfinch offers texture and conveys a feeling of realism to the snowfall on the branch.
The wool painting “Bullfinch on a pine tree” is an original one of a kind artwork. Picture size: 8 x 10 inches (20.3 x 25.4 cm). Painting is nicely framed in an oval black frame. Overall size: 10 x 12 inches (25.4 x 30.5 cm).
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
