Loon

I had fun painting this loon. Lots to work on with all of the patterns and reflections. Not sure it’s a total success, but definitely good practice.

I decided to paint fur instead of feathers this time.

Here is the last of the crows (for now). These paintings are available as prints on Etsy.

I really enjoyed working on the first crow painting, so I decided to do a couple more. Here is # 2.

Crow #1

This is the time of the year when you see young crows learning to fly. They are so vulnerable – usually sitting helplessly on the ground until they figure it out. I watched one little guy get off the ground, only to slam into the side of a parked car. Kind of comical once I realized he was okay.

I’ve gotten a little behind on my posting over the Christmas season. Here’s one from last month. 

Chickadee

I clearly have a thing for Chickadees, since this is the third one I’ve painted recently. I’m pretty happy with how they’ve turned out. And even happier that one has sold!  

Starling

Once again I was challenged by the shiny, shimmery, iridescence of feathers. I was trying to capture all of the colours that were reflected back from his feathers, but also wanted to show how shiny he was. I don’t think I succeeded (but I like how the head turned out).
