Cr eate con­trasts

This paint­ing shows an adult Parasaurolo­phus grazing amid wa­ter lilies, while sev­eral ju­ve­niles hunt in­sects nearby. Mod­el­ling the be­hav­iour on that of liv­ing birds, I imag­ine the scene as a crèche of young di­nosaurs stick­ing close to the adult for safety. There are many kinds of con­trasts in this paint­ing: warm ver­sus cool colours, and soft ver­sus hard tex­tures. I'm also con­scious of cre­at­ing a tight clus­ter of the faces of the lit­tle hatch­lings around the tiny in­sect, while keep­ing big, empty, blurry, un­clut­tered spa­ces in the up­per ar­eas.
