BLUE JAY MAMA AND BABY


The Winsor Newton texture medium dried on the branches and I began painting them, paying attention to the colors and lights in the photo.  Added a little Cobalt blue to the background sky while it was wet.


Birds come next!

Your background is magical, Rhonda, and the branches are just gorgeous!
Can't wait to see more.

that background goes so well with the subject matter and the branch texture looks great :D

The branches alone are just stunning, a painting on their own. This will be a beauty. Now don't mess it up! ;)
