Finished: Wren Painting

Finished this one up yesterday. I enjoy the melodious song of the Carolina wren. They seem to be happy little birds always singing their hearts out. I'm calling him "Southern Charmer".

New WIP - Carolina Wren

I started this little 8x10 of a chipper Carolina wren on a milkweed stalk this past weekend. I'm painting on an old Gessobord panel that I had started a painting on but didn't like. I re-primed it and started to paint this piece with acrylics. I quickly realized I didn't like the slick surface under the acrylics and switched to painting in oils. Much better. Here's a few progression shots:

Finished - Fox Watercolor

After staying up until 2 a.m. the other night working on this piece, I have declared it finished! I hope you enjoy it. I need a title for this...any suggestions? Now that this is out of the way, I'm going to have some fun doing some smaller pieces for an upcoming show. I'm taking a break from watercolors for the time being...
