Another bird wildlife painting complete!


I can't believe I was able to complete this painting in just a few days. I am quite happy with the way it turned out and now for the best part...framing!!

She's beautiful Colette, I absolutely hate the framing part! This was a super fast piece, well done you!

Karie Ann, I'm happy you like her. Artists usually choose to paint the more colorful male but I found her so pretty the way her feathers and markings appeared on the ref photo that I felt I had no choice but to show her off! Thanks for your comments.

She is beautiful, Colette! Don't you just love it when they take less time than you think? :-)

Wonderful! And you are right...that background really gave it a finished look.

A beautiful work Colette! It would be difficult to add a background last I think and you have done a superb job!
