It made me think- what if I made the bird a totally different color like yellow and facing the opposite direction?
It sold too, but it took quite a while.
Recently, I was in the mood to paint yet another bird, but I wanted to go bigger. I have had this 14X20 canvas hanging around, so I decided to go BIG. Here's how I did it:
First- After I had scetched the bird and flowers. I painted in the blues of the bird and the orange of the flowers:
Next- I added the red of the berries in the flowers:
Next- I added the copper for the stems and the details of the bird:
Finally- I did some final touches and changed the eye color. Here he is:
