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.
I really enjoyed working on the first crow painting, so I decided to do a couple more. Here is # 2.
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’m much happier with this black bird than I was with the last pair.
It took me a long time to finish this painting. I had trouble with the background. There were too many little shapes and colours and it was too complicated. This is the simplified version, so you can imagine how busy it was before. Not my favourite painting.
