Progress Update

Dodo painting in progress by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 20″w x 10″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

Another close-up of my dodo painting in progress.  This is just the initial rough layer of paint for now.  I’ve actually been working on the background, but I won’t reveal too much just yet.  So for now, it’s just a little sneak peek.  The entire painting is 20″ wide by 10″ high and is an acrylic on canvas.  I’ll share more updates soon, in the meantime, you can check out the rest of this series here: http://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

In Progress

Dodo bird sketch by Amy Guidry; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

Close-up of the initial sketch for my upcoming painting featuring a dodo bird.  The dodo became extinct around roughly 1662, and since there were no cameras then, I’ve been researching the internet to find out as much as I can via eyewitness descriptions and illustrations from that time period (assuming they’d be fairly accurate but maybe they took artistic liberties as I will be doing).  I’ve also been comparing a lot of existing birds as well, ranging from parrots to vultures, and everything in-between.  I should mention that I was partly inspired to paint the dodo after reading “The Song of the Dodo” by David Quammen.  I highly recommend everyone read it.

Happy to announce my new work for the new year.  Just finished Sight, an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.  It’s the latest addition to my In Our Veins series.  Also announcing Reflection, though technically not a 2018 painting, I just recently framed it in an antique frame painted black.  Reflection is an acrylic on cardstock, and is 4 1/2″ wide by 5 5/8″ high framed (image size is 4″ tondo).  Both of these paintings are currently available, $100 each.  Direct inquiries to me here: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.

Up for the Challenge

Doing a lot of research right now as I plan to include a dodo in a future painting. To clarify, this piece is by Roelant Savery and since it was painted in 1626, roughly 40 years before dodos were extinct, I think it should be fairly accurate. There are so many variations in the colors, the shape and size of the feathers, and even in the size of the dodo, and since there are no photographs, I’m combing over old illustrations that range from representational to cartoonish, photos of dried up remains, as well as images of parrots, pigeons, vultures, and chickens. It’s a bit of a daunting project, even though I normally paint realistic images of what isn’t real, I’ve at least seen these things in person to some extent. The challenge is not only to paint something I’ve never seen, but to bring it to life. I’m anxious and looking forward to the challenge at the same time.
