I started working on a new bird painting featuring a tropical species that I photographed in St-Augustine, FL several years ago. I have so many reference photos that sometimes, I want to paint them all and really have a hard time choosing which one to do next.
Working in pastels requires protective framing (which can be expensive!!) and since I already had the perfect frame for this composition, I decided this was the one! I hope you enjoy watching the progress of this piece.
