This was from one of hundreds of bird photos I've been admiring on Facebook. They have turned me into somewhat of a bird junkie! I painted it this afternoon, all in one go, right after I finished an alla prima gesture portrait, as I painted along with a Jeffrey Watts video. I'll post that tomorrow, just so we can track my progress as I work through all the samples he has on the video. All in all, it was a satisfying day in the studio.
