study for birds in acrylic
I found a goofy way to depict birds using acrylic paint.

Despite using acrylic as a house painter each day, I found the substance unpleasant for art. Drying was too fast and the brushes felt uncomfortable in my hand.

I dabbled with the idea of artist oil paints again, but didn't want half-dried canvases falling face-first on the carpet. Nor did I want to clean bushes. Plus I needed something I could turn on and off quickly. Simple, immediate, and quick. Paint was perfect but it would never do.
