Gorgeous Bird Paintings By Adam S. Doyle

Artist Adam S. Doyle's gestural paintings of birds appear incomplete, and that's because they are. His incredible brushstrokes form the body and feathers of the bird, creating a fluid-like effect that's both simple and dynamic. In his words:

"I’ve always loved unfinished paintings because you could see the alchemic process of surface and paint transforming into a living person. With my paintings, it does take quite a bit of working and reworking to arrive at the place where every brush stroke fits into a fluidly flowing whole. It’s important to me to find a balance between an elegance of form that holds both visible marks of paint and a representation of ‘energy within.'"
