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:

Looking good thus far...I can just feel the softness of the bird's feathers. Looking forward to seeing it in it's finished state.
